Mission Statement

The mission of the Safe Infant Sleep Foundation is to determine how to prevent unexpected deaths of infants while they are sleeping. A review of past studies on infant deaths and an investigation of current technology will be used to make the determination. Particular attention will be given to infant monitoring used in past studies, and to the monitoring technology available today. When appropriate, new studies will be proposed to test predicted solutions. Results of research and investigations will be provided to the public at no change.


The Foundation was formed in October, 2013, out of a desire to find a solution to the on-going tragedy of Sudden and Unexpected Infant Death. The foundation received its 501c3 tax exemption status in July 2014, and is currently developing plans for conducting research projects for the prevention of Sudden and Unexpected Infant Death. The foundation is currently operated strictly from donations with only a volunteer staff. The goal is to fund research projects through donations and grants, to provide information and resources to parents, and to eventually help find a solution which will prevent most of these deaths.
