The NAACP works to ensure that all disadvantaged students and students of color are on the path to college or a successful career by ensuring access to great teaching, equitable resources, and a challenging curriculum. We are dedicated to eliminating the severe racial inequities that continue to plague our education system. Our ultimate goal is that every student of color receives a quality public education that prepares him or her to be a contributing member of a democracy.
To achieve these goals, the Education Committee of the San Mateo board, in concert with education chairs and leaders from across the Association, have settled upon a four-prong strategy to improve educational achievement for disadvantaged students:
Each year, NAACP | San Mateo, through generous donations, is able to provide scholarships to outstanding students. It is the duty of our dedicated Scholarship Committee to determine the most outstanding individuals to receive these awards. The NAACP does not provide financial aid to individuals, only scholarships through this process. Make a difference and donate today!
NOTE: Contributions earmarked for certain purposes such as ballot measure campaigns or federal or state independent expenditures may be reportable under federal or state disclosure laws. If a 501(c)(4) engages in electioneering communications under federal law, it is required to disclose the identity of all contributors of $1,000 or more to the organization going back to January of the prior year unless a segregated account is used to pay for the electioneering communications. Federal and state laws vary on reporting contributions.
