Dar a Luz Birth & Health Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and we are designated as a public charity. Monetary donations allow us to offset operational costs and offer reduced-cost and free services to women in our community who are underserved.

We are pleased to announce our Recurring Giving option! This allows our supporters the opportunity to contribute a smaller amount on a recurring basis -- and to still make a big difference in our community.

Hoping to Donate Milk?
Now Dar a Luz is proud to partner with the Mother's Milk Bank to become New Mexico's first and only milk depot. We collect frozen breastmilk from verified donors, and ship it to the Milk Bank for testing, pasteurization and re-distribution to NICU hospitals.
