Annual Report
2012 - 2013

Chenoa Buldurn with Andrea Wallace - CE Graduation Class 2013


March of Dimes relies on the generosity of donors to help fund our programs. Due to space limitations, only those donors who made gifts of $1,000+ or whose cumulative giving reached $5,000+ in 2012-2013 are recognized in this Annual Report.

However, we extend our sincere appreciation to all donors. We also extend our gratitude to those donors who wish to remain anonymous. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy and completeness of these very important lists. We apologize for any errors or omissions.

Donor names are also published online at​
