Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between donating and becoming a member?
Become a NAMI member at all three levels of the organization—national, state and local—with one payment! We have three membership rates depending on what makes the most sense for you:
- $60 per year for a Household membership that includes all members of a household living at the same address
- $40 per year for a Regular membership which is an individual membership for one person
- $5 per year for an Open Door membership for an individual member with limited financial resources
Donations are separate, allowing you to contribute any amount directly to NAMI Hawaii.
If I donate more than the membership amount, will I become a member of NAMI Hawaii?
It’s your choice. If you select the membership check box on the donation form, that portion of your donation will go towards your NAMI membership, and the rest will be considered donation. If you would prefer to make a donation without joining NAMI, just leave the checkbox unselected.
Are donations to NAMI Hawaii tax deductible?
