Making Democracy Work

Support the League - Donate

We rely on dues and donations to support our programs.

How Does the League Financially Sustain Itself?

The League's source of income depends on annual dues and donations. Dues are primarily used to annually pay the State and National Leagues a per member payment (PMP) which leaves the local League with $3.00/person to use toward the operation of the League. Donations therefore are depended upon to carry out the work of the League from voter services, community programs, advocacy, and more.

There are three funds to contribute to in order to support the work of the League of Women Voters of Greater Lafayette:

General Operating Fund

Education Fund

  • Supports studies of local community issues
  • Tax deductable

Fern Weber Fund
