Welcome to NAACP Gary

The Gary, Indiana Branch of the NAACP was formed in 1916. Currently, the branch continues to support the programs and policies of the NAACP with aggressive action at the local level, with our focus on education.

Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. From the ballot box to the classroom, the thousands of dedicated workers, organizers, leaders and members who make up the NAACP continue to fight for social justice for all Americans.


Each year the NAACP, 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.
