You may have heard that this year we are making our branch’s NAACP scholarships renewable, meaning they will not be just be one-time awards. The good news is that is true. But that also means we need more money to make that happen.
Our scholarship fundraising campaign is called “Chapel Hill and Carrboro Give Back” and we want to hit our new fundraising goal by April 1, so we need your help now!
First, we’re asking that you—our close supporters and NAACP members—support “Chapel Hill and Carrboro Give Back.” Just click HERE to make your personal donation!
Next, fund raise with your friends, co-workers and places where you do business! Start with anyone that supports our mission and use the copy below to call or email people to get them to contribute. Adjust the text just a bit if you want to use email.
