By making a generous contribution to LDF's Scholarship Programs, you are supporting the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (LDF) in our effort to develop the next generation of change agents.  For nearly half a century, students eager to defend and protect civil rights have been funded through LDF's Scholarship Programs. We are proud to support the next generation of change agents by providing important financial, academic, and practical support to young people who will shape and mold our society and continue to advance and fight for the cause of civil rights for all people.

LDF (which administers the Herbert Lehman Education Fund) and the Earl Warren Legal Training Program are both 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that rely on individual contributions to continue their work. Your support is greatly appreciated.
