The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. For more than 75 years, moms and babies have benefited from March of Dimes research, education, vaccines and breakthroughs.

Kmart is the March of Dimes top partner for the health of moms and babies.

Thanks to our Shop Your Way® members, customers and associates, Kmart continued its status as the #1 corporate contributor to the March of Dimes by raising more than $9 million in 2015. The money supports research and community programs to help prevent premature birth – the number one killer of babies.
