Amplifying our voices at the polls

The Building Community Voice Fund (BCVF) is a non-partisan fund established within the NAACP, in collaboration with GSSA, funders, and select partners, to provide grants to 501(c)(3) voter registration and voter turnout initiatives and organizations, including complementary voter education and voter protection programs. 

BCVF focuses on down-ballot and local elections where outcomes can have positive influences on Black communities.

A Winning Model: The Story of Shelby County

The early success of the Shelby County program helps us define the impact of investing in competitive races in both competitive and progressive counties. Our approach for 2024 is to emulate the targeted and intentional strategy used in Shelby County and use those early learnings to help inform our work across our priority states in 2024.

The Shelby County results demonstrated that targeted investment with state groups have positive effects on Black voters' daily lives, but there is still plenty of ground we can cover with a deeper and continuing commitment to the BCVF program.
