Planned Giving

Your Bequest Will Keep NAMI Kansas Strong, Active, and Vital

You know that your support for NAMI Kansas’ current work is essential. But beyond that, a bequest to NAMI Kansas helps us plan for and increase the possibilities for our future work: organizing new affiliates, expanding the opportunities for education and peer support, raising awareness, fighting stigma, and advocating for resources to enable individuals living with mental illness to achieve recovery.

Making a bequest is a special opportunity to show your long-term commitment to NAMI Kansas’ work and leave behind a meaningful legacy.

You can provide for NAMI Kansas’ future in various ways,such as bequests of cash, stock and securities, mutual fund shares, life insurance benefits, and retirement plan assets.  In your will, you can state a dollar amount or specific securities, or you can make a residual or contingent bequest.  For information about other forms of giving, such as living trusts or remainder trusts, please contact our office.  We recommend that you consult with your attorney or tax advisor for any restrictions and tax benefits that may apply to your specific situation.

Please contact for additional information and a prompt response to questions that you or your advisor have. We thank you in advance for making NAMI Kansas part of your legacy.
