Goal

Raise funds in support of MMBA’s mission to save the lives of preterm and medically-fragile infants through the provision of donor human milk.  

When we opened our doors in 1999, we made a promise to never turn away a child with a medical need for donor human milk.  

We have kept that promise- providing hundreds of thousands of dollars of charitable assistance to vulnerable infants throughout Texas and beyond —thanks to the generous support of individuals, businesses, and foundations.

Charitable Giving Program

Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin is committed to caring for all babies with a medical need for human milk.

Our Charitable Care Program ensures life-saving donor human milk is provided to all infants with a need, regardless of the family’s ability to pay. As one of the only milk banks in the country to offer a Charitable Care Program, we ensure that the sickest and most fragile babies are served and that no baby will be denied care due to a lack of insurance or financial resources.

We’re able to provide this program because of the generosity of individual supporters, business partners, and foundations. 100% of the donations we receive are dedicated to supporting our mission and our lifesaving programs like the Charitable Care Program.

With 17% of all children in Texas and 10% in the U.S. lacking health insurance, we continue to experience a significant need for charitable care. Texas Medicaid only pays a portion of the milk fee for qualified babies so there is still a significant percentage of the fee that is not covered, in addition to any shipping costs.

The necessity for this critical program continues to grow year-after-year.  In 2020, we provided approximately $250,000 of charitable care to babies throughout the United States who needed donor milk to survive but whose families did not have the financial resources to cover the costs. Without support, these benefits may run out.

Everyone can be a lifesaver.
