This year, we will be walking in memory of loved ones that have passed by suicide, for those that struggle with mental illness, and for our future generations so that nobody ever feels alone.
It’s easy to register, make a team, and raise money for our organization. We operate solely on donations from individuals and companies. We do not search out grants. Every penny counts.
Your donation does NOT go to pay any employees. Stand Against Suicide is a 100% volunteer based organization, right from the President/CEO to our Board members. Your donation DOES go for:
– free peer based support groups for adults and youth
– licensed mental health counseling
– medication payment assistance to the uninsured
– scholarships to first year students in psychiatric fields
– support after a suicide; including financial assistance to families for funeral expenses
– donations to local veteran’s groups
– awareness materials, including clothing, jewelry, and novelty items- every item is designed to get people talking about mental illness and suicide
– operating expenses for our permanent location in Jordan, NY, where we hold our support groups and store merchandise
– vendor booth rental at events where we raise awareness
– so much more!!!
