NAMIWalks NYC and Mental Health Street Fest is our signature fundraising and awareness event. Each May, we bring thousands of people together at the Seaport to support our mental health programs. Participants walk together in solidarity, enjoy wellness activities, create live art installations, and learn about free community resources.

Seeds of Hope Gala brings together supporters, community leaders, and mental health advocates. Each October, we honor individuals for their contributions to our community and work towards ending mental health stigma. Enjoy fine dining, entertainment, and our silent auction all supporting our free mental health programs to all New Yorkers.
Young Professionals Night Out for Mental Health each spring is a unique fundraising and networking event for young people who have lived experience with mental health challenges or are passionate about mental health care access for all. Join our Young Professionals.
We have dedicated individuals who fundraise and run for the United Airlines Half Marathon team in March and TCS NYC Marathon team in November. Our runners share their stories, break stigma, and forge lifelong friendships. We bring NAMI-NYC runners together for meetings, community building activities, and fitness pointers from a trained coach. Apply to join our team here.
With DIY fundraisers, community members can share their passion for NAMI-NYC’s work and use their creativity to host their own events. For your birthday, launch a Facebook fundraiser. Want to do something more social? Host a dinner party, happy hour, or summer barbeque and ask your family and friends to give, in any amount. Funds go to our free mental health programs and community.
