Can you tell me more about March of Dimes?

For more than 75 years, March of Dimes has been a leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

Founded in 1938 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the original mission of the March of Dimes was to defeat polio. By 1955, with funding from the March of Dimes, the Salk vaccine had been developed, followed by the Sabin vaccine in 1962, and polio was on its way out.

Throughout its organizational history, March of Dimes has tackled the problems of the nation's moms, babies and families. Campaigns have supported polio, birth defects, folic acid, newborn screening and premature birth.

Today, the March of Dimes is inspired by all babies – those born healthy and those who need help to survive and thrive. These babies are the millions of reasons behind our urgent mission and why the March of Dimes:

  • supports all important research offering hope for preventions and solutions for babies born with birth defects;
  • fights for health insurance for all pregnant women and children;
  • pushes for expanded newborn screening that could save lives and prevent disabilities;
  • reaches out to women with healthy pregnancy information and services;
  • provides comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care.
