March of Dimes

Every minute a baby is born too soon. Every day, 72 babies die due to preterm birth complications. All year long, YOU can make a difference for all babies.

The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. March of Dimes was founded by our 32nd President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, in the fight against polio. After the discovery of the polio vaccine, March of Dimes focused their efforts to improve the health of babies and has been successful with the help and enthusiasm of many grassroots volunteers.


Since 1978, Key Clubs have been making a difference for babies everywhere. Key Club members, like you, continue to support the March of Dimes all year long by hosting service projects, raising funds and educating your community about the crisis of preterm birth. Honor the 15 million babies born too soon worldwide this Fall by Coloring Your School Purple to help end Prematurity during Prematurity Awareness Month in November. In the Spring, continue your efforts with March for Babies – our signature fundraising event.
