NAAAPI thanks its many members and supporters who recognize the dire need to bring about increased health awareness in communities that are hard-hit by the scourges of alcohol and tobacco use. We are a 501(c) 3, not for profit corporation whose funding comes from foundations, governmental support and individual contributions, like yours.

Make a real difference. Send your donation in your name or on behalf of someone whose life has been ill affected by substances that are undermining African American communities. These are deadly substances that contribute to poor health, violence, community & family instability and crime.

There are four levels of yearly contributions:
Visionary : $1—$49 donation
Enlightened: $50—$99 donation
Radiant: $100—$249 donation
Luminary: $250 and above

Your name/organization will be prominently acknowledged in upcoming national publications and at special events.

In considering your pledge, recognize that tobacco-related disease is the number one preventable cause of death in this nation. Each year, more African Americans die from diseases caused by smoking than from car crashes, AIDS, homicide, cocaine, heroin and other drugs put together.

Also, remember that low-income Black communities statistically have excessive numbers of bars and establishments that sell liquor. Greater access leads to the tendency for greater use, particularly among our nation's impressionable young people.

YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO NAAAPI WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE as we continue to succeed in reducing the impact of the tobacco and alcohol industries throughout the United States by eliminating products targeted to African Americans.

Please send your check or money order to:
1231 North Broad Street
Philadelphia, PA 19122

Thank you for joining the fight and making a difference!

A special acknowledgement is extended to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Legacy Foundation whose generous support has helped NAAAPI bring about significant and meaningful changes in the tobacco and alcohol control environment.
