SUPPORT THE MISSION
The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. The March of Dimes carries out its mission through research, advocacy, community services and education to save babies’ lives.
Every year more than 15 million babies are born prematurely; a million will die before their first birthday as a result. With your gift at the Signature Chefs Auction, you can help fund the research, education, and support to ensure more babies celebrate their birthday.
March of Dimes is the largest and most respected maternal-child health organization in the world. We help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. And if something goes wrong, we offer information and comfort to families.
More than 4 million babies are born in the United States each year, and the March of Dimes has helped each and every one through 75 years of research, education, vaccines, and breakthroughs.
An important component of the Signature Chefs Auction is Fund the Mission – an opportunity for everyone to make a donation to the March of Dimes. Each gift is 100 percent tax deductible and helps our foundation carry out its mission through research, advocacy, community programs and education on the local, state and national levels.
