Freedom Fund Banquet

The NAACP, Lincoln Branch's Freedom Fund Banquet, Thriving Together was held September 9, 2023 at Lincoln's Marriott Cornhusker Hotel. Our keynote speaker was Preston Love, Jr., founder of Black Votes Matter Institute of Community Engagement and the Institute for Urban Development. Proceeds from our annual Banquet help fund the NAACP, Lincoln Branch's Community Service Scholarship Fund.

The Community Service Scholarship is awarded in the spring to Lincoln high school graduating seniors who will attend a post-secondary accredited institution. To be eligible, a student must have a grade point average of 2.5 or above and be a current member of the NAACP Youth Council. Applicants must demonstrate a record of service to members of their local community documented by letters of recommendations. There is no restriction as to the field of study and the scholarship is open to all regardless of race, gender, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation.
