Ways to Give

Give back to the community

“Mere words cannot express what SBA has done for me. It not only helps provide programs related to my condition, but it provides a feeling of empowerment and kinship between the 166,000 in the U.S. who are affected by this birth defect. I have had the opportunity to make friendships that will last a lifetime. That is not something you can put a value to.”

-Will Dickey, adult with Spina Bifida

There are lots of ways you can help fund much needed research into the complexities of Spina Bifida, shape public policy on crucial issues affecting our community, deliver vital education to individuals, families, and healthcare professionals across the nation, and provide support to those in need who are living with or affected by the birth defect. Please choose one of the options below.

Donate Online 
You can make a one-time gift or a monthly gift and even choose to honor or memorialize a friend, family member, or loved one. When you opt to set up a monthly gift, you’ll be invited to join the Backbone Alliance, a dedicated group of supporters united in their passion for enhancing the lives of all those affected by Spina Bifida. As a member, you’ll receive periodic organizational updates, invitations to special events, an annual gift of appreciation, and a year-end gift statement, convenient for tax purposes.

In 2008, we lost twins, one of whom had Spina Bifida, when I went into early labor at 24 weeks. We give so that one day no family will have to experience a loss like ours.
