Patients In Need
The Little Giraffe Foundation works closely with leaders in neonatal research as well as neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) across the country. If you are need of support, we are happy to review your needs. Please follow the below processes depending on your goals.
Neonatal Research Grants
The Little Giraffe Foundation is looking for top research partners focused in neonatology to improve the quality of care in the NICU, to improve survival rates, and to ensure greater quality of life for those babies once they leave the NICU. Our grant application process is very similar to the March of Dimes, so feel free to reuse this paperwork for your Little Giraffe Foundation application. If you have not yet applied for a March of Dimes research grant you can view the process below to begin the application process. Once your paperwork is completed you can email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
NICU Support Grants
The Little Giraffe Foundation has partnered with many NICUs and organizations dedicated to supporting NICUs across the country to provide support to NICU patients and their families. We are open to providing funds for everything from rocking chairs to small gifts for each of the families currently spending time in the NICU. For examples of the type of support we have provided in the past, you can see Our Work.

Several of our wonderful supporters will be running in the 2014 Chicago Shamrock Shuffle on March 30, 2014. They are raising funds for Little Giraffe Foundation through this event on active.com. All proceeds go to funding neonatal research and NICU families! If you are interested in supporting our team, please do so!
During the entire month of April, More Than Milk and the Neighborhood Parents Network will be supporting the Little Giraffe Foundation by hosting playdates! They will be helping us to collect comfort items such as board books, plastic baby toys, journals, and reusable water bottles for NICU families.
A list of playdates open to the public is available here. You must sign-up online to attend and space is limited!
