Gerald, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People or NAACP, an interracial membership organization, founded in 1909, has been instrumental in improving the legal, educational, and economic lives of many people. When you speak of the NAACP raising funds, they established a reason for that. Goals are set that they want to achieve. During the president election, NAACP wanted to increase the number of colored voters and supply transportation if needed to get them to the voting booth. They had to carefully asses how much money must be raised to achieve the organizations goal (Smith, Bucklin & Associates, Inc., 2000, p. 100).

Unformatted text preview: The NAACP has been able to raise money through solicitations. Not just from membership solicitations. When you have a realistic goal and it is well defined you will receive support through numerous contributions. One good tool of solicitation that the NAACP uses is solicitation letters, a direct appeal letter on the organization stationary (Smith, Bucklin & Associates, Inc., 2000, p. 118).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
