The Mothers’ Milk Bank of Montana is a small nonprofit with limited resources serving a huge geographic area. Many families with medical needs for breast milk do not have the resources to pay.
To help alleviate this problem, MMBMT has set up a fund called the “Give the Gift of Milk Fund” to help offset the cost of human donor milk to low income and financially stressed families. However, the requests for milk exceed our current funding. Financial contributors to this fund will provide families (see Sarah’s story) with donor breast milk who do not have the financial resources to pay for the processing fee of $4.00 per ounce.
Children eligible for this fund will be newborn to one year of age, the period when breast milk is most important for growth and development. Funding will be allocated to qualifying families in a one-time scholarship of $250.00 each towards the purchase of donor milk. By donating to the Give the Gift of Milk Fund, you are supporting a child in need of the lifesaving benefits of donor milk.
We gladly accept monetary donations to cover day-to-day operations at the milk bank which include activies like: screening new donors, collecting donor milk, pasteurizing the milk in our lab, and dispensing it to hospital NICUs and individual families.
Thank you for your generous support!
