Make an Impact! Vote for NAMI Vermont!

NAMI Vermont is proud to announce that we are one of five finalists for the Red Sox Foundation’s 2022 IMPACT Award (presented by the Ruderman Family Foundation)!

What is an IMPACT Award?

IMPACT (Inspiring More Philanthropy Across Charities Together) Awards highlight non-profits who are making a difference across New England. The focus this year is on organizations that have demonstrated deep impact in raising awareness and improving the mental health outcomes in their community.

To qualify, a nomination must be sent in for a non-profit. From those received, the Foundation chooses 5 finalists for each of the six New England states. These finalists will be in the running for one of three prizes:

  • First Prize: $10,000 
  • Second Prize: $3,000
  • Third Prize: $2,000

How Do I Help NAMI Vermont Win One of the Prizes?

This is where our NAMI Vermont friends and fans come in! Starting today, people get the chance to vote for their top choices in each state. You can vote once a day from now until May 31, 2022. At the end, the three organizations with the most votes in each state determines the winners.

TIP: While you can only vote once a day with your email address, if you have multiple addresses, you can vote under each one separately and it will count.

Where Do We Vote?

You can find the website here to vote. Visit each day and vote for groups in all six states, not just Vermont!
