Strategic Alliances and Development The Strategic Alliances & Development department advances NAMI’s mission by securing financial resources and developing high profile partnerships. We raise funds to support our operating costs as well as specific programs and projects. Our fundraising efforts include grants, direct mail, major donor development, cause marketing, sponsorships and events; our target audience is foundations, corporations, individuals and influencers. Through organization-wide collaboration, we systemically and strategically engage donors and prospective donors into the life of NAMI. Our activities are diverse, but the common thread is building relationships with individuals and organizations that wish to support NAMI.
