Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between membership and a donation? Does my donation automatically qualify for membership?

A donation is a tax-deductible gift to NAMI. Donations sustain NAMI and provide the necessary operating funds so that we can educate, advocate and change the way America thinks about mental illness.

When you make a gift, it does not mean you are a member of NAMI. However, we have many people who choose to be both donors and members of our organization.
