BabiesNow! Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity whose mission is to provide diapers and wipes to Denver area nonprofit organizations to be used as incentives for families in need to participate in programs that benefit babies.

Grant Information

BabiesNow! Foundation provides grants in the form of diapers, wipes, and/or restricted monetary awards twice a year to nonprofit organizations.  (We do not provide grants to individuals.)  Monetary grants may only be used to purchase diapers/wipes. Nonprofit organizations must use the diapers/wipes as incentives for families to participate in a program that benefits babies.  The nonprofit organization also must verify that intended recipient families are in financial need and meet certain criteria.

In making our grants, we value each diaper at 20¢ and each wipe at 3¢.  We assume a baby uses five diapers per day, although we acknowledge that newborns require more than five diapers a day.  Thus, $1.00 will supply one baby diapers for one day.  A month’s supply of diapers is valued at $30 and a six month’s supply at $180.  

Grant Application Process

Step 1: Submit Grant Application and Demographics Questionnaire

To apply, submit the Grant Application and the Demographics Questionnaire. We use information from the questionnaire in reporting to many of our funders.  Only nonprofit organizations may apply.  

BabiesNow! Foundation grant applications are accepted on a continuous basis.  Grants are awarded twice a year, in May and November.  Submission deadlines are April 1st and October 1st respectively.  

You may submit the application by emailing it to babiesnowfoundation@gmail.com or faxing it to 303-660-4669.

Step 2: Grant Determination

We will inform you if you are or are not awarded a BabiesNow! Foundation grant after the grant submission deadline.

If your organization is given a monetary award, it will be mailed to you.  If, however, your organization is given an award of diapers/wipes, you will be contacted, and it will be your responsibility to make arrangements to pick up the diapers/wipes.  We will work with you to make this process as easy as possible.  (It is possible that we will make extra awards if we receive large donations of diapers/wipes and may contact you to see if you would like to pick them up as a supplement to your existing grant.)

Step 3: Grant Report and Renewal Grant Application

Within six months of receiving a BabiesNow! Foundation Grant, submit the Grant Report to BabiesNow! Foundation.  By accepting a BabiesNow! Foundation grant you agree to complete a Grant Report.

If you want to renew your grant application, please submit both the Renewal Grant Application and the Grant Report.  Remember submission deadlines are April 1st and October 1st for May and November grants respectively.  

If you have questions, please email us at babiesnowfoundation@gmail.com.  We want to help you help make our community’s babies happier and healthier.
