Mission Statement

The March of Dimes Mission
To improve the health of babies by
preventing birth defects, premature
birth and infant mortality. We carry
out this mission through research,
community services, education and
advocacy to save babies' lives.

In 1938, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt established the March of Dimes and asked all American to join him in finding a cure for polio, the nation responded. In 2005, the treat is no loner polio but something equally devastating to affected families. The March of Dimes is leading the fight to find out why premature birth happens and what can be done to prevent it.

Prematurity is a common, serious and costly problem that takes a tremendous emotional and physical toll on babies and their families. It is the leading cause of newborn death for those who survive, it could mean suffering from lifelong chronic health conditions or developmental disabilities. Research being conducted now could ensure that one day all babies are born healthy and full-term.
