Equity Before Birth Virtual Auction

In honor of Black Maternal Health Week, all proceeds will directly benefit families.

In honor of Black Maternal Health Awareness Week, Equity Before Birth is hosting a Virtual Silent Auction. All proceeds of the auction will go directly to benefit families.

We are working to improve maternal health experiences and birth outcomes by providing support in 3 main ways:

  • Providing paid leave opportunitites for bed rest and recovery from a birth event
  • Increasing access to culturally affirming services
  • Providing finances for essential baby needs

Here are some highlights from our first 6 months of operations:
  • Gained over 20 community and direct service partners including NCCU's Department of Career and Professional Development and Duke University's Fuqua on Board program
  • Raised over $225,000
  • 100% Funded by donations
  • Assisted 30 families (& counting) with an average of $1,085 each (will assist at least 10 more families this month)
  • In the process of hiring an intern and Sponsorship Coordinator

Our Impact:
  • Provided paid leave for multiple families, helping them secure a healthy transition back to work
  • Provided full spectrum doula services to several families including small business owners, entrepreneurs, young couples entering parenthood and single mothers who would have otherwise had no additional support
  • Provided essential baby needs for several families (helping families secure car seats, cribs and formula when unable to access it through WIC and other systems/services)

Thank you to our donors for supporting our work!
