Grant Proposal for the Pasadena Birthing Project In terms of infant mortality, the United States ranks thirty-fourth behind other developed countries, including Cuba and Taiwan, and the rates for African-American babies are 13.9 deaths per 1,000 live births; and African-American infants are nearly two and a half times more likely to die before their first birthday than white American infants 1 . The problem of infant mortality and racial disparities in African Americans health needs a solution. The Pasadena Birthing Project celebrated 13 years with the only national African American maternal child health volunteer campaign, Birthing Project USA, to improve better birth outcomes.

We will provide all legal documents that are necessary to be used for your company’s tax deduction. We will also provide financial reports that explain in details about our income and expenditure for the public. Benefits for Altria Atria’s relationship with the Pasadena Birthing Project will be reciprocal. Other than making profits, a company that holds a vision that goes beyond the bottom line will attract more employees, businesses and loyal customers. .
