Fundraising for Mental Health

Your support as a Walk fundraiser makes a tremendous difference in our community. As you raise awareness for the importance of mental health, you can also increase access to critical services for individuals and families living with a mental health condition. Because of your generosity, ALL of our educational programs and trainings are free to community members.

If a supporter wishes to donate to your fundraiser via check, please advise them to make the check payable to NAMI Rochester and write your name in the memo line. They can mail the check to NAMI Rochester at 346 N. Goodman St., Rochester NY 14607.
