PLEASE NOTE: A United Way donation does not enroll you as a member of NAMI Sacramento. As much as we would like to record United Way donors as members, we can't. A membership requires a single lump sum transaction, rather than funds disbursed monthly throughout the year, and we do not receive sufficient information from United Way to record a membership.
