Why Donate to a Nonprofit Milk Bank?
Your breast milk is valuable to the health of babies. By sharing your life promoting resource, your breast milk will help many other babies in need, especially those that are ill or in the NICU. Your breast milk will have a significant impact on the health and life of others!
This organization, as a non-profit, recognizes the value of your breast milk and the time and energy it takes to donate your milk. Profits are not made off of your valuable breast milk for the shareholder or stakeholders.
As a non-profit, we rely on charitable donations and contributions to achieve our goals of proving human milk for those babies in greatest need. For-profit companies and businesses have specific goals and objectives to make money; non-profit milk banks will not make money from your donated breast milk.
The only beneficiaries of milk donated to a non-profit milk bank are the babies.
There are no Shareholders profiting from your donation.
The only charges associated with the milk are to cover processing and shipping fees.
No newborn with medical need is denied donated human milk, regardless of ability to pay.
The Mountain West Mothers’ Milk Bank is a member of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA) and complies with its strict guidelines for the establishment and operation of a donor human milk bank. The guidelines meet all national health requirements.
