Helping moms and babies in Virginia
The March of Dimes Virginia 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 $25,000.
The March of Dimes Virginia 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.
For further information regarding Grants and the Grants process, please contact our Chapter Director of Program Services, Sara Long at firstname.lastname@example.org or via 804/ 977-2023 (Direct line).
