How to Help


Hospital birthing units are often the first place that new moms hear about the $500 Alfond Grant. By providing new moms our Congratulations Card and returning the Contact Care, you are making a difference in a child's future.

Many hospitals have found success by having new moms return their contact card before they leave the hospital - it's one less thing they need to think about when the get home with a newborn. Some have found it helpful to have someone from the Alfond Scholarship Foundation provide some information on the Alfond Grant either virtually or in-person.

Feel free to reach out to us at, we are always happy to talk with you about ways we can support you!
