Greater Oregon grants
Helping moms and babies in Oregon and SW Washington
The March of Dimes Greater Oregon Chapter funds programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. This includes providing financial support to research and education that will help moms before and during their pregnancies. It also includes working with local medical groups and organizations to improve prenatal care and newborn screening.
Grants and awards are given to projects that address the urgent needs of moms and babies. Grants are generally awarded for one to three years and range from $10,000 to $20,000.
The March of Dimes Greater Oregon Chapter uses gifts wisely. We award grants based on a number of criteria, including the group or organization’s ability to accomplish its goals, as well as the potential impact a project will have in helping us prevent premature births, birth defects and infant mortality.
We are now accepting Letters of Intent for our 2014 Community Grants.
Proposals will be accepted from organizations with the capacity, competence and experience to accomplish project goals and objectives. Priority will be given to projects that meet one or more of the following criteria: a) help reduce disparities in premature birth; b) are evidence-based; c) include measurable outcomes. Projects may focus on consumers and/or health care providers. The March of Dimes does not fund billable health care provider services.
