Volulnteer Opportunities:

Our work is made possible by thousands of volunteers. There are many ways to assist us in helping babies, moms and families close to home.

You can take part in selling sponsorship opportunities, recruiting new volunteers, coordinating outreach to mission families, serving on our Advocacy and Government Affairs Committee, assisting with marketing communications or public relations and much more. Tell us a little about yourself and we’ll find opportunities to help you get involved.

Advocate: March of Dimes speaks out for laws and legislation that improve care for women and children in North Carolina and across the country. Our team of grassroots volunteers and staff promote the mission agenda by contacting the governor and state legislators in response to North Carolina action alerts. Whether promoting increased health care coverage and prevention measures or supporting research and public policy studies, learn how you can make a difference.

Donate:

If you are a long-time March of Dimes supporter or just giving for the first time, we could not work to save babies without the generosity and commitment of people like you. Your donation supports programs in your community that help moms have healthy pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And it provides comfort to families with a sick or premature baby.

Donations can be made here.
