The NAACP Collier County branch respectfully request your consideration in sponsoring our event. The Freedom Fund Banquet is an annual fundraiser to support our youth-oriented programs to help us reach the underserved student achievement gap of this community. Over recent years our focus has been Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, (STEM) and now we are successfully integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math, (STEAM) to impact the future of our underserved youth. Our programs are considered and recognized as model award winning programs not only locally but also nationally. And please don’t forget Academic, Cultural, Technological, Scientific, Olympics (ACT-SO) student enrichment program.
Your financial support has made it possible to affect change positively for young people over the past few years through generous donations. We are asking again in extreme need of your sponsorship to support this event. For new sponsors coming abroad this year you will find that we work very hard to promote our sponsor participation during and after banquet. Furthermore, we love our sponsors and very thankful for your help.
Sponsorship supports the following programs:
- Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) for college bound students
- Academic, Cultural, Technology and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) for High School students
- Raising the Bar College Preparatory Programs for 8-12 graders students
- Scholarship Awards for Collier County students
- Other youth related programs like Youth Council
Over 250 community leaders, organizer and supporters will come together to enjoy the festive 35th Annual Freedom Fund Gala. This is the 109th Anniversary of our organization and will mark the 50th Commemoration of the assassination of our late but great Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on February 24, 2018 at the Naples Grande Beach Resort. The highlight of the program is our student showcase and personal account of the youth talents.
As a sponsor, we want you to engage and provide insight of your company brand and footprint here in Naples and also highlighting your commitment to the betterment of humanity.
Please help this community of underserved minority youth by completing the form and sponsoring a young person by no later than February 15, 2018.
