Monetary Investment for Lactation Consultant Certification (MILCC) is an international non-profit charitable organization that provides financial assistance to qualified candidates seeking International Board Certified Lactation Consultant® (IBCLC®) certification and current IBCLCs seeking recertification. 

MILCC is funded from private contributions from people like you, donations for pins, and fundraising. We offer logo pins and service bars as gifts if you choose, and monetary donations are greatly appreciated. Your generosity can really make a difference for IBCLCs and the breastfeeding families who benefit from their care. Donate today and become a member of the MILCC Giving Circles
