  • “Fifty for Life” Membership Drive

    Join the 2019 Class of

    “Fifty for Life” Members!

    Help secure the future of the Norwich Branch NAACP – Become a Life Member today!

    Membership is the life blood of any community organization, and particularly for the NAACP.

    The NAACP would not exist without the passion, drive and strength of it’s members – and every local branch has the responsibility of maintaining and increasing membership to keep the organization strong.

    To charter / start a Branch, 50 regular Adult members must be signed up and pay their dues.

    As members increase their time with the organization, the strongest take another step up and commit to being Life Members.

    In order to ensure that our local branch in Norwich NEVER has to worry about losing their charter, we have begun a ‘Fifty for Life’ membership drive: the goal is to add 50 life members (Silver, Gold or Diamond) to our ranks.

    Over the past almost 55 years , Norwich Branch NAACP members have combined their efforts with the State Conference and National organization, and we’ve all fought together and won many of the freedoms and equalities that we had long been denied.

    But the times ahead are just as critical – if not MORE critical – as the decades past. By renewing / upgrading your membership with one of our Life Member options, you can become one of the most important members of the NAACP family. We need your renewal membership to continue fighting against the racial disparities that are still so prevalent in American education, jobs, housing, health care and criminal justice systems.

    Renew or upgrade your membership to a Silver, Gold*, or Diamond** Life NAACP membership today!

    Silver Life Membership $750 – Payable in annual installments of $75.00 or more. (Add 2.25 if using PayPal)

    Gold Life Membership $1,500 Payable in installments of $150 or more. (Only available to Silver or Regular Life Members)

    Diamond Life Membership $2,500 Payable in installments of $250 or more.
