March of Dimes March for Babies
Signarama is Proudly Supporting March of Dimes March for Babies 2017. The event is major funding source supporting the Mission of the March of Dimes.
Mission: March of Dimes
We help moms have full-term pregnancies and research the problems that threaten the health of babies. In local communities across the country, we're helping moms take charge of their health, and supporting families when something goes wrong. The March of Dimes also acts globally: sharing best practices in perinatal health and helping improve birth outcomes where the needs are the most urgent.
In The Foundation’s financial results for 2012. Total Revenue came in at just under $219 million, an increase of $17.2 million compared to the prior year. This included a significant increase of $18.5 million from investment gains over the prior year that offset a loss from operations primarily due to a $3.2 million decline in bequests and major gifts. We are very pleased to report that despite the decline in operating revenue, we continued to focus on programmatic activities and increased total program spending by $7.9 million. This resulted in a program ratio just under 76 percent.
Nationally the March for Babies events raised $106.2 million. Nearly 50% of total funds raised.
