March of Dimes Canada 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 2013-2014 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
