Where does my money go?
Financial donations to MMBA support one of two critical programs:
Life-saving donor human milk is provided by physician prescription to those infants with a medical need, regardless of the family’s ability to pay. No fragile baby will ever be denied donor milk due to a lack of insurance or financial resources.
Already recognized as a leader in milk bank research, MMBA is building on its knowledge of nutritional composition and its variation in donor human milk to develop ways in which the milk can better meet the needs of the very low birth weight infants. Critical research is only possible through donations for these studies and required equipment.
The bottom line:
100% of financial donations to the Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin are used directly for the Charitable Care or Research Programs. All operational costs for the milk bank are supported through processing fees paid by hospitals using donor human milk for their infants.
