We are honored to be the 2011 March of Dimes grant recipient

As a free service and a non for profit program...

we rely on support from donors like you. This important resource is funded in part by a small grant from the NYS Department of Health. We are not able to offer a full time service without addtional support.

This coming year, we face new challenges, needs and opportunities. We are doing more with a lot less. We are committed to assuring that every woman and her doctor have access to the most current information about exposures in pregnancy.

We can't reach these goals without your support. Please consider making a financial contribution.


Ferre Institute, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 not for profit organization and your donation is tax deductable. Take a moment now to write a check or make a credit card contribution that will help to keep these services available.
