Please rally your friends (from near and far) to help us raise $22,500 during this 24-hour online giving challenge. Every gift will be multiplied through matching funds to benefit our Tommy August Memorial Emergency Care Fund!

The more money NAMI-CC raises through Give Where You Live Collier — the larger percentage of the $500,000 matching funds generously provided by the Community Foundation of Collier County and the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation we receive.

Join us in raising awareness about the essential programs and services we provide for the community. Open our GWYL Campaign Email Blasts and Facebook posts … then Like Us … Share Us … Spread the Word on social media … or just have a conversation to tell friends and family why NAMI-CC is important to you and why you believe in and support what we do.

WHO YOU WILL HELP

With your support, our Emergency Care Fund will be there to help.

Designating NAMI-CC for this 24-hour online campaign will provide critical funds to assist both individuals and families throughout our programming areas. Offering a helping hand when it is needed most to people on their personal journey of resilience and recovery.
NAMI-CC helps by eliminating  short-term emergency financial barriers to ensure their immediate mental health needs are met. Sometimes helping with housing assistance or co-pays for essential psychiatric care and medications. Providing money to pay for a bus pass or other transportation to get to a doctor’s appointment. Purchasing “work” clothes to help someone start a new job or helping a family buy a school uniform to ensure their child can attend classes.
