Funding Support

Minding the Baby® in New Haven has been solely supported by grants and gifts since the intervention's inception in 2002, and the MTB National Office continues to be primarily grant funded. Donors are essential in helping us achieve our mission, and our vision that all families will receive the support they need to thrive with optimal health and emotional well-being, and all children will feel safe, secure, and connected in their relationships. MTB would not be possible without the generous support of our funders, listed below.

If you are interested in contributing, your tax-deductible gift can have an even greater impact if your company has a matching gift program. In some cases, your spouse's company may match your gift. Find out here if your company will match your contribution. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies also match gifts made by retirees. (Yale's Federal Tax ID: 06-0646973)
