How Your Donations are Making a Difference
Each year, March of Dimes provides life saving programs and services for people with disabilities. In addition, the increasing demographic of seniors means more Canadians in the coming years will acquire disabilities or have their disabilities worsened with age. Your gift now and your continued support can help us address our future needs.
In 2015-16 March of Dimes Canada provided 3.8 million hours of service to more than 75,000 children and adults. Our goal is to enhance the independence and community participation of people with disabilities every day through a wide range of programs and services across Canada.
