The Freedom Fund Dinner is our only significant event for the year; therefore, we are encouraging our past, present and new supporters to be a sponsor for this momentous occasion. Organizations,  businesses and individuals can support our annual Freedom Fund Dinner and the mission of the NAACP in several ways.

As you may know, the NAACP is our nation’s oldest Civil Rights organization whose purpose is to improve all groups’ the political, educational, social, and economic status and eliminate racial prejudice. This year’s theme is “Power of Building Generational Wealth,” and we shall never lose hope. Our focus will be on Voting Rights, the power of inclusion, Education and Voter Participation. Our future as an organization and how we can carry out our advocacy mission for the Greater Harrisburg area’s citizens are crucial to the fight for Social Justice and Civil Rights.
