NAMI NH

Including NAMI New Hampshire in Your Estate Plan.

Introducing the NAMI NH Legacy Circle

Every year, mental illness impacts the lives of at least one in five adults and children in the Granite State.

NAMI New Hampshire is a grassroots organization working to improve the the lives of all people affected by mental illness and suicide through support, education and advocacy.

Many New Hampshire citizens concerned about mental illness have chosen to make provisions in their wills or trusts to support the work of NAMI New Hampshire, becoming charter members of the NAMI New Hampshire Legacy Circle. The Legacy Circle recognizes those who have generously included NAMI New Hampshire in their estate planning. 

We invite you to consider joining this thoughtful and generous group!

If you have included NAMI New Hampshire in your estate plans, please let our Development Office know by emailing us at development@naminh.org or calling us at 603.225.5369.  We would like to welcome you to the NAMI New Hampshire Legacy Circle.

A common and simple way of supporting NAMI New Hampshire is by making a provision in your will or trust.

Your will designates your beneficiaries and spells out your final wishes. The beneficiaries would include your heirs, of course, but many people include provisions for charitable organizations as well. It is our hope that you will consider including NAMI New Hampshire in your plans, and we invite you to join our Legacy Circle.

The following suggested forms of bequests are examples that can be adapted by you and your attorney to meet your specific intentions. Please contact Kristen Welch, CFRE, Director of Development, at kwelch@naminh.org or 603.724.4001 with any questions.

A specific bequest names a particular dollar amount to be left to NAMI New Hampshire.

“I give and bequeath to NAMI New Hampshire, a New Hampshire non-profit corporation, Tax ID number 22-2760743, with offices at 85 North State Street, Concord, NH 03301, the sum of $ ___________ to be used for the general purposes of the organization (or to be used for a specific purpose such as advocacy or family support or suicide prevention).”

A percentage bequest names a percentage of your estate to be left to NAMI New Hampshire.

“I give and bequeath to NAMI New Hampshire, a New Hampshire non-profit corporation, Tax ID number 22-2760743, with offices at 85 North State Street, Concord, NH 03301, ________% of my estate, to be used for the general purposes of the organization (or to be used for a specific purpose such as advocacy or family support or suicide prevention).”

A residuary bequest first leave specific amounts to family members, friends, or other charities, and then designates that all or part of what remains should go to NAMI New Hampshire.

“I give and bequeath to NAMI New Hampshire, a New Hampshire non-profit corporation, Tax ID number 22-2760743, with offices at 85 North State Street, Concord, NH 03301, all (or stated percentage of) the rest residue and remainder of my estate to be used for the general purposes of the organization (or to be used for a specific purpose such as advocacy or family support or suicide prevention).”

A contingent bequest names NAMI New Hampshire to receive part or all of your estate in the event your designated beneficiarie(s) predecease you.

You might insert in your will language such as the following:

“If any beneficiary named in this will is not living at my decease, then I give and bequeath to NAMI New Hampshire, a New Hampshire non-profit corporation, Tax ID number 22-2760743, with offices at 85 North State Street, Concord, NH 03301, any bequest which said beneficiary would have received if he or she had survived me.”

REFLECTIONS FROM LEGACY CIRCLE FOUNDING MEMBERS

FRANCES BELCHER AND RICHARD TYLER

“NAMI NH is an important resource for support and accurate information to NH families and policymakers. We believe the quality of life for all of NH’s citizens has been vastly improved as the result of NAMI NH’s efforts. My husband and I decided to join the founding members of the Legacy Circle to reaffirm our lifelong commitment to access to mental health support services for all NH families.”

RONA AND KEN PURDY

“Our life’s message, and work, has been about the effect of mental illness on our life, and that of our family. NAMI NH was there for us in our darkest days. We had hoped that within our lifetime the impact of stigma would have been eradicated, but we now know other families will continue to need NAMI NH. We need to know that NAMI NH will be there for them in this difficult journey for a real and fulfilling life for those we love.”

MICHELE GRENNON

My family’s firsthand experience with mental illness has underscored how vital it is to always have hope. Joining the Legacy Circle allows me to help ensure that other families will be able to find hope through NAMI NH – for as long as they need it. That’s what NAMI NH is about – families helping families and finding hope.”
