This Giving Tuesday (Tuesday, December 3), let’s make it personal. As we enter the season of giving and gather with our families and loved ones to give thanks and gifts, we ask that you consider supporting our efforts to improve mental health care and services in California.

Give to NAMI California on behalf of someone you care about, whether it’s a family member, a peer, a friend, a co-worker, a neighbor, or a community member. Think of it as putting us on your gift list and then checking it off on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, when people across the globe make donations to their favorite nonprofit organizations.

Each gift we receive for Giving Tuesday will support our ongoing work to help individuals, families, and communities living with mental health challenges in California.

You can make a donation for someone you love in any amount to help make a difference. If you give a major gift of $500 or more, you can contribute to our Tree of Tribute and we will create an engraved leaf or precious stone at the base: Bronze leaf ($500); Silver leaf ($1,000); Gold leaf ($2,000); Small stone ($3,000); Large stone ($5,000). Each leaf or stone has a story of triumph and inspiration behind it, which empowers all of us and commemorates our success in delivering the NAMI California vision and mission.
