Labor unions have stood with March of Dimes since our inception
For nearly 85 years, they have been rooted in our shared values of family and equity.
We’re proud to have strong and long-standing partnerships with unions, dating back to 1938 when United Auto Workers (UAW) joined our cause to support the dime drive launched by President Roosevelt to end polio. Today, we have multiple international labor partners, and union liaisons hold key positions on March of Dimes committees and boards across the country.
A partnership with March of Dimes means ensuring the families you care about most have equitable access to the resources and support they need for the best possible start.
