Ways to Give

There are so many ways you can help NAMI Kenosha County continue making a difference in the lives of people with mental illness and their families. We have several programs donors can utilize in making their gifts, including general donations, memorials and honorariums, workplace giving, planned giving, and endowment giving. A variety of options are explained in more detail below.

Tribute Gifts: Honorary and Memorial Giving

You can contribute to NAMI Kenosha County in honor of someone special in your life or in memory of a lost loved one. You can make an honorary or memorial gift online, by mail or on the phone.

Workplace Giving and Matching Gifts

Many employers offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Many programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift. Contact your employer to see if they have a matching gift program.

Planned Giving

One of the most meaningful and easiest gifts you can make is through a bequest to NAMI Kenosha County. A bequest is a gift you pass to a person or entity through your will. Charitable bequests are unique in that they enjoy deductions from federal and most state inheritance taxes. Your financial planner can provide you with assistance.

If you do decide to make a charitable bequest to our organization, you will need to choose the type of bequest that best suits your particular needs and wishes.

  • Specific bequest: While this may take the form of an exact dollar amount, it could be a specific asset from your estate such as stocks, bonds, life insurance or real estate.
  • Percentage bequest: A bequest may be expressed as a percentage of your estate. Expressed in this way, your wishes are guaranteed regardless of whether your estate grows larger or smaller over time.
  • Contingent bequest: Certain criteria must be met before a contingent bequest is satisfied. For example, you might designate that we receive all or some of your estate only in the event you outlive your primary beneficiaries. This language protects your estate from litigation or from distribution to unintended parties.
  • Restricted bequest: You may wish to restrict your bequest for a specific purpose or NAMI Kenosha County program.

Please consult your financial advisor for more information on planned giving.
