Your support matters

Join us to empower families by supporting them before, during and after pregnancy. Hosting your own fundraiser lets you tap into your talents and interests to inspire others to get in on the action. With the money you raise, we can advocate to change laws to prioritize the health of moms and babies, invest in cutting-edge research and provide local programs like Supportive Pregnancy Care and NICU Family Support®.

FOR EVERY $500 YOU RAISE:

  • Help 5 families feel at ease in the NICU with support, education and activities.

FOR EVERY $1,000 YOU RAISE:

  • Provide 4 moms-to-be access to our Supportive Pregnancy Care program where they receive prenatal care, support and education throughout their pregnancy.
  • Comfort 10 families in the NICU by providing them critical information before, during and after their hospital stay.

FOR EVERY $2,500 YOU RAISE:

  • Help 10 women access quality prenatal care, better preparing them for pregnancy, infant care and family planning.

TOGETHER WE FIGHT FOR HEALTHY FAMILIES:

We believe that every mom and baby deserve the best possible start. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Your local efforts will raise critical awareness and funds to improve the health of all moms and babies in communities across the county. Together, we’re helping families be strong and healthy today and for generations to come.
