Celebrating the Agents of Change this Black History Month
By America's Charities on January 19, 2022
During Black History Month, which takes place each year during the month of February, there is much to celebrate about the past achievements and impact each of our member charities listed below has contributed to this country. There is even more to celebrate about the incredible programs and missions these nonprofits are actively delivering on right now – initiatives that you can support and get involved with today and all year long. As the NAACP states, “Advocacy has one direction, forward.” There is so much more history to be made and the NAACP, along with our other members listed below, are actively charting a course forward for present and future generations to make history.
In honor of #BlackHistoryMonth, click on each of America’s Charities’ nonprofit members below to learn about their past contributions to this country and ways they continue to shape and make history:
- NAACP Legal & Defense Fund

- 100 Black Men of America

Throughout the month of February, we encourage you to:
Donate & raise money for these nonprofits whose work has and continues to pave the way for inclusion, civil rights, equity in justice, education, and a better tomorrow. America's Charities is proud of the work our member charities do in these respective areas. One of the most cost-efficient ways you can support these nonprofits is to donate to them via payroll deduction through your employer's workplace giving program (Don't have a program?
