How To Help

Donate Milk

You can save lives by donating your extra breast milk for use as pasteurized donor human milk. Your breast milk contribution will have a big impact, as a premature infant eats as little as one ounce or less in a single feeding. 

Exclusive human milk feeding significantly reduces the incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis, a leading cause for prematurity-related death, and contributes to the overall wellbeing of medically fragile infants. 

To get screened as a milk donor, call one of our 27 nonprofit member milk banks. They will interview you by phone, advise what you need from your doctor, and require a blood test through a lab they identify. 

Lab tests and shipping will be provided at no cost to you. Once approved as a screened milk donor, you will then be able to donate milk.
