Little Giraffe Foundation Names 2021 NICU Support Grant Recipients


CHICAGO, Nov. 30, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Little Giraffe Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to funding neonatal research and supporting families and premature babies in the NICU, announced today the 15 recipients of the foundation's 2021 NICU Support Grants.

"The families that the Little Giraffe Foundation supports have gone through unprecedented struggles in the past 18 months?dealing with stricter precautions, less in-person family support and less contact with their infants in the NICU, all due to the pandemic. That's why the Little Giraffe Foundation board of directors is pleased to fund 15 NICU support grants to help these parents and families," said Amanda Santoro, co-founder and president of the Little Giraffe Foundation. "These grant recipients have created programs uniquely suited to support their NICU residents and we look forward to seeing the positive results of each project in 2022."

This year's Little Giraffe Foundation's NICU Support Grant recipients are as follows:

"From support for parents traveling to and from the NICU to innovative technology that helps premature babies prosper, each of these grant recipients is fulfilling the needs and providing comfort to families in the NICU so that they can focus on the health of their babies," said Mike Santoro, co-founder of the Little Giraffe Foundation. "We are proud to offer these 15 support grants so that each institution can continue implementing these valuable programs. The entire Little Giraffe Foundation community would like to thank our monetary donors and volunteers that make this funding possible. Each person who donated this past year supported the well-being of babies in the NICU and their families."
