Support Our Efforts
Ready to help? The Little Giraffe Foundation is a growing organization looking for volunteers and donors to help support our efforts.
Make a Donation
Our primary goal is funding medical research focused on neonatal development within a NICU environment. There are a number of doctors and nurses working on cutting edge research, but in order to further this work, adequate funding is needed for staff, equipment, and lab work. The Little Giraffe Foundation is working to partner with the March of Dimes, the leading funder of research in this area as well as Vermont Oxford Network which works to coordinate NICU research and communication across the NICU community.
You can become a part of these efforts by making a donation. Checks can be made payable to the Little Giraffe Foundation or use our Paypal donation tool located on the right side of this page.
The Little Giraffe Foundation hosts a number of fundraisers throughout the year to help secure the resources to forward medical research. We also support the NICU through various gatherings. For more information about getting involved you can check the events page or contact us directly.
