Be creative! Below are more concepts for helping NAMI CCNS

1- Donations IN HONOR or IN MEMORIAM of someone you love – What a beautiful and meaningful way to recognize your connection to someone special.

2- BIRTHDAY donations to NAMI CCNS in lieu of birthday gifts. Celebrate a birthday, anniversary or special day by asking your friends to make a donation to NAMI CCNS.

3- “CASH BACK” dollars from your credit cards – If these come to you as an occasional surprise every once in a while, consider passing them along to NAMI CCNS. These “extra” dollars will go such a long way with our education and support programs.

4- Donations of STOCKS, BONDS and MUTUAL FUNDS – If you have any appreciated securities that you would feel comfortable donating to NAMI CCNS, do so knowing that you will get that critical tax deduction and help others so much.

5- MATCHING GIFTS – Many employers will match gifts made to 501(c)(3) organizations. Check with your HR department to see if this doubling (or tripling) of your donation is possible.

6- Endowment Contributions – When you make an endowment contribution, the principal will remain untouched while the earnings will go a long way towards helping NAMI CCNS with its mission.

7- Having a SPECIAL OCCASION? A gathering of friend or neighbors? Ask one of our talented speakers into your home to talk to your guests about what we do. Be a personal “fund” or “friend raiser” for NAMI CCNS. This can be a moving and poignant experience for you and your guests.

8- PLANNED GIVING – Including NAMI CCNS in your will or trust means you ensure a gift that will have an enduring impact in the important work we do.

9- Have your WORKPLACE do a GROUP FUNDRAISER for NAMI CCNS – We can work with your place of business to arrange a rewarding and powerful experience where everyone is a winner. Talk to us about more ideas!
