Approved Milk Donors

You are AMAZING! We can not thank you enough for being willing to improve the health and survival of babies across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Donating milk is a unique gift and we are honored to be part of your story.

Are you ready to donate your milk?

Once you have been assigned your donor number, we can accept your milk donation. Depending on where you live, we have four options to safely transport your milk to Northwest Mothers Milk Bank.

 

All milk donations are required to have an Illness, Medication and Travel Form. Find the form in the Useful Links below. If you, or someone in your household, has recently had a positive case of COVID-19 please call us for details on how to manage your donation. Additional information about human milk and COVID-19  can be found here.

  • Check to see if there is a Milk Drop location near you. Many of our milk drops have had to adjust hours during the pandemic so please contact them directly before dropping off your milk.

  • If you do not live in the greater Portland or SW Washington area, you can request a cost-free shipping container directly to your home. You can use the same form to request complimentary milk storage bags.

  • Do you live in the greater Portland or SW Washington area? Consider driving your milk to the milk bank in Tigard, Oregon. We will meet you at your car. We embrace any opportunity to meet our milk donors! Give us a call to let us know when to expect you, 800-204-4444.

  • If you live in Portland or SW Washington and the options above are not possible, we can sometimes arrange to have a NWMMB volunteer provide a no-contact porch pick-up. Call us at 503-469-0955 or email milkdonor@nwmmb.org

Tell Us More About You!

Each of our milk donors have their own reason for giving back to the community. We would love to hear your story and often feature stories on our social media. We also love receiving pictures of your experience being a milk donor. Share your story
