Information for Donors
Donating online is safe, fast and secure. NAMI uses VeriSign’s 128-bit SSL encryption, the strongest encryption available, which means your personal and credit card information is transmitted securely. To make a donation online, visit the link sent to you by a walker or team and click on Support Me to follow the prompts. You can also search for an individual or team via the walk home page.
Your donation will be listed along with your name and personal message unless you choose the Show my name to Walker only or Hide my name from everyone options available before processing your transaction. Please note: If you choose one of these options, your name will not appear on the walker’s webpage, but anything you write in the personal message space will appear.
Donors will receive an immediate on-screen and email confirmation of their donation. You will also receive an instant tax receipt if you provided us with an email address. Please add email@example.com to your list of approved senders.
Want to send cash donations or checks? You can give them to the walker or Team Captain to turn in on Walk Day. Alternatively, you can send them to the address listed on the Walk home page, indicating which walker and team the donation is supporting. (Please do not mail cash)
- The option of donating anonymously prevents your name from showing up on the webpage and online searches. To further remain anonymous online, do not write your name or other identifying information in the message area as this appears on the walker's webpage. Please note: whenever a donation is made in support of a walker, they are notified of the donation and given the name of the donor so that they may thank that person. If you wish to remain anonymous – even to the walker you are supporting – then select Hide my name from everyone. If you don’t want your donation to show on the walker’s page, select Show my donation amount to Walker only.
- If your company will match your donation, please contact the local Walk Manager listed on the event page to learn how to submit the paperwork.
1. I do not see my donation listed on the walkers’ webpage
If you made a donation to a walker or team, then you should be able to see your donation reflected online. If you have processed your transaction and received confirmation but do not see your donation reflected, please click Refresh or Reload button on your browser. If it still doesn’t appear, the walker may have selected their own privacy settings. Please contact the local Walk Manager.
