NAACP is funded through membership sales and generous private donations from individuals and organizations who share our mission. As an IRS-designated 501(c)(4) nonprofit advocacy organization* operated by local members and leaders, private contributions are our primary source of funding.

Your gift will help us continue working toward our mission of ensuring the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination. Give to fuel the fight, build power, and a stronger, unified voice for people and communities of color.

*Donations to the NAACP and other 501(c)(4) social welfare organizations are not tax-deductible.

Tax-Deductible Contributions
