60th Annual Freedom Fund Banquet – You are the Power: VOTE!

This year marks our 60th Freedom Fund, a critical annual fundraiser run by NAACP Branches since 1953. Sponsorships fund our events like Black History Month, Juneteenth, and the Freedom Fund Gala. Proceeds support our social programs and our community initiatives. This year’s Freedom Fund Gala will be Saturday October 7th, at the Coatesville Country Club, 143 Reservoir Road, Coatesville.

We engage in political action, voter registration, political redress, social inclusion for women, human and civil rights, healthcare and education, labor and industry, and provision for economic security for all people of color and those who are disadvantaged.

Can we count on you to help us embrace diversity, ensure greater opportunities for all people, and provide hope and inspiration in the coming year?
