From celebrities and local elected officials to your neighbor down the street, caring individuals like you have helped drive the mission of the March of Dimes to a long, rich history of success. Founded in 1938, the March of Dimes continues to fund critical, lifesaving research and medical breakthroughs that benefit countless people around the world. We also connect with moms and moms-to-be through our websites, printed materials, videos and community programs, and offer information and comfort to families with a baby in newborn intensive care. Today, we fight the crisis of premature birth, which affects 1 of every 9 babies born in the United States. Help put an end to this and other health problems that threaten our babies. Come out and walk, donate and raise money as we work together for stronger, healthier babies. Thank you!

Getting Started

Posted by Online Fundraising

It’s March for Babies season, when we start looking ahead to the freshness of spring and walking to help babies. While the number of babies born too soon has gone down for 7 years in a row, more than 450,000 babies are born prematurely every year in the United States. Families need our help right now! The money you raise will support research into the causes and preventions for premature birth so that more babies can be born healthy and strong.

Whether you register as an individual fundraising walker or part of a team, you’re making a difference for moms and babies everywhere. If you haven’t already done so, why not get started with a donation to yourself? It shows your family and friends that you believe in the cause you’re fundraising for, and it feels great to see the first donation on your personal fundraising dashboard! Ask those friends and family members to raise money and walk with you and make an even bigger impact!

The earlier you start, the more time you have to fundraise! Set a goal of $1,000 or more, and be a member of our Circle of Champions. You will earn some exciting incentive gifts. Thank you for joining us!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

It’s mid-March and it’s March for Babies season! Today is a great day to get registered and start asking your family and friends for donations! Need some help? We’ve got 5 easy ways to ask:

#1 Fundraise online

The winning way to fundraise. We know how busy you are. Online fundraising is faster and brings in 3 times more money. Share your personal fundraising link via email and post on social media like Facebook and Twitter!

#2 Make your own donation

There’s a lot of value in setting a great example and showing how much you care.

#3 SOCIAL-ize

Post your reason for walking, status updates, pictures, etc., to Facebook and Twitter to create a fabulous fundraising network. Don’t forget to include your personal fundraising link.

#4 One-stop fundraising

From the Dashboard on your personal fundraising page, you can upload photos to personalize badges for your emails, website or blog; or create funny, friendly eCards.

#5 Stay connected

Your Dashboard also lets you: download iPhone® and Android apps so you can conduct your campaign from the palm of your hand; download our Facebook app; or easily spread the word with the social media share buttons.

#6 Double your donations

Asking your donors if their company has a matching gift program is a terrific way to raise twice as much.

#7 Call on colleagues

Talk about the walk face-to-face, leave notes around the office or hang posters in your workspace and on bulletin boards.

#8 Outside the box

Beyond work, reach out to a ready and caring audience: your children’s school, an organization you belong to, a place of worship.

#9 Quick way to $250

Cann’t hurt to give this a try! Make a $25 donation. Ask three friends to match it; two family members for $20; four colleagues for $15; a neighbor for $10; your doctor for $25; and a local merchant for $15. You did it!

#10 Remind and thank

Don’t miss an opportunity to help babies. Send reminders to those who expressed interest but haven’t yet donated. Please thank everyone genuinely and enthusiastically for supporting you and remind them how special they are.
