All the ways to Give

Help bring safe donated human milk to every baby who needs it

Your tax-deductible donation allows us to continue providing lifesaving nourishment to families and advancing the milk banking industry with critical research and leadership.

Make a donation

Your support is instrumental in our mission. It helps provide lifesaving donated human milk to premature and medically-fragile babies, encourages more milk donors, ensures the safety and quality of human donor milk, and supports community outreach and education. Thank you for being a key partner in enhancing the health and lives of infants in need.

Give in honor or memory of your loved one

Dedicate a gift to a friend, loved one, or to someone who has lost a baby. By choosing this option, Mothers’ Milk Bank will place a leaf on our Tree of Hope to commemorate your gesture. You will receive a thank you card acknowledging your gift unless you opt to remain anonymous.

Sponsor a milk cooler

Without human donor milk, premature and at-risk babies have a higher chance of contracting serious illnesses and other issues commonly seen in the NICU and beyond. Getting that precious milk to its intended recipient is no simple task–but as a milk cooler sponsor, you make it happen. You choose exactly where your generous donation is going–to help us provide everything a milk donor needs, from breastmilk storage bags to safe shipping, to ensure a smooth journey for her milk.

Donating stock

Donating stock to Mothers’ Milk Bank is a powerful way to support our mission of providing life-saving nutrition to vulnerable infants. By contributing stock, you not only help ensure the availability of human milk for the tiniest babies in need but also benefit from potential tax advantages. Your donation enables us to continue our vital work in promoting infant health and well-being. Together, we can make a significant difference in the lives of these precious little ones.”
