As advocates and champions for healthy babies, our goal is to connect donor human milk with as many sick and fragile babies as possible. Financial gifts help our organization to recruit and screen donors, pasteurize and test milk and deliver milk to babies in the community. Funds also go toward harder-to-fund expenses, including operational costs. As a charitable organization, your financial contributions go a long way to help our work in the community.
NorthernStar’s Community Care Fund is a great way to invest in our vision. For babies in the community whose families cannot afford the dispensing cost of donor human milk, community care is available. This fund, which is generated solely from individual, family and corporate donors, ensures families can access milk for their baby. 100% of funds raised for community care are used to cover the cost of milk for families in need.
To give directly to community care, please contact us.
You can also donate funds for a specific gift. Here are the top items we’re currently fundraising for:
