Fundraise for NAMI Bucks County, PA

NAMI Bucks County, PA offers classes, support groups, school presentation programs, and a 7-day-a-week helpline at no cost to the people of Bucks County who need them most, but we can’t do that alone. We are a non-profit organization that relies on grants, gifts, tax-deductible donations, and fundraising efforts like yours to spread awareness about mental health conditions, suicide prevention, and substance use disorders. We can’t thank you enough for your support. Here are a few ways to help us:

Facebook Fundraiser

Click “Fundraisers” in the left menu of your News Feed. Then click “Raise Money for a Nonprofit Organization” and “Get Started.” Search for “NAMI of PA, Bucks County Chapter” and follow the prompts to set up your fundraiser. All money raised will go directly to NAMI Bucks County, PA. Facebook usually prompts you to create fundraisers shortly before your birthday, and we’d be honored if you donated your birthday to NAMI.

Stride for Mental Health Awareness

The NAMI Bucks Stride for Mental Health Awareness is held each May for Mental Health Awareness Month. Your participation, contributions, and sponsorships provide us with the means necessary to fund these efforts for a full year. Funds raised will be used to support our Ending the Silence program which delivers mental health education to middle and high school students in the Bucks County school system. This program effectively ends the silence and stigma surrounding mental illness and lets students know that it’s okay to ask for help when needed. Visit the NAMI Bucks Stride for Mental Health Awareness website to learn more. Fundraising efforts for the 2019 Stride begin now!

Fundraising Tips

Fundraise for a Special Day

We encourage you to fundraise all year long, but special days make your fundraising efforts more effective. These include birthdays, holidays, weddings, anniversaries, graduation, and more.

Challenges

Draw attention to your fundraiser through a personal challenge. Let your friends and family know what you’ll do once you’ve met your fundraising goal. Maybe you’ll dye your hair green which is the color of mental health awareness! Be safe and creative! If you’re fundraising in honor of someone, consider a challenge with a theme that’s closely tied to the person you care about.

Make it Personal

People usually choose to fundraise for NAMI because they have a personal connection to mental health awareness or suicide prevention that makes supporting our mission fulfilling. Share your own story so your readers, listeners or followers are inspired to help change and save lives in our community.
