Ways to give

Moms and babies face a serious health crisis today. Together we can change that. We have many options for you to give that can support research, education, advocacy and programs to ensure that every family is healthy and strong now and tomorrow.

Give a gift. Make a difference.

Any one of the options below will help us continue with our goal of creating a world where every mom and baby is healthy and strong, regardless of wealth, race, gender or geography.

One of the simplest ways to help is to make a financial contribution. Large or small, every dollar donated supports parents throughout their pregnancies and fuels our work.

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is like a charitable investment account for the sole purpose of supporting the charitable organizations you care about. 

If you possess stocks or mutual funds, think about leveraging these assets for your charitable contributions and tax savings.

Making a bequest to the March of Dimes ensures your legacy in advancing maternal and infant health, contributing to a lasting impact on future generations.

Creating a will is essential for directing your assets to the charities you care about, allowing you to leave a lasting impact on meaningful causes.

Charitable Gift Annuities (CGAs) or Charitable Remainder Trusts (CRTs) provide you with lifetime income while supporting the March of Dimes after your passing.

Giving retirement assets to March of Dimes is a tax-wise method to aid maternal and infant health while easing estate tax concerns for your heirs.

A gift from your retirement account is a tax-efficient way to support the March of Dimes while fulfilling the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) obligations.

A free and easy shopping assistant that helps you find deals and support charities.

Cryptocurrency is an innovative way to support March of Dimes' work. We accept Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), and 70+ other digital currencies.

There are many ways to give and make a difference for families. If you choose to give online, you can make a one-time donation or set up a monthly gift to March of Dimes. You can also make your donation in honor or in memory of a baby you love. The receipt for your tax-deductible gift will be available online in your March of Dimes account dashboard.
