Our Organization

The National Council of Negro Women, Inc. (NCNW) is a nonprofit membership organization founded in 1935 by Mary McLeod Bethune, a child of slave parents, distinguished educator and government consultant. With a mission to lead, develop and advocate for women of African descent as they support their families and communities, NCNW addresses issues of human welfare and rights through public education, community service and advocacy.

NCNW reaches nearly 4 million women through 39 national affiliate organizations and more than 240 sections through activities such as:

  • Disseminating information about issues affecting African American women and their families.
  • Promoting healthy lifestyles and behaviors through wellness projects.
  • Sponsoring events, such as the Black Family Reunion Celebration, to build on strengths and traditional values.
  • Training and supporting women and youth in career development and community leadership.
  • Supporting economic development and entrepreneurship.
  • Providing mentoring and educational support to our young people.

Centrally organized to fill the gaps in our communities, NCNW calls on a core of volunteers in 34 states to address local needs. NCNW brings to these initiatives the added support of a network of thousands of women whose collective efforts enhance community service and actions. We have truly united to enhance our power for the benefit of African and African American women and their families.

Since our founding, NCNW has focused on fulfilling our mission by launching programs that provide critical services to women, children and families. Even a brief sampling of our programs and partnerships illustrates the breadth and depth of our program offerings.
