The League of Women Voters Education Fund conducts voter service and citizen education activities. It is a nonpartisan nonprofit public policy educational organization, which:
- Builds citizen participation in the democratic process.
- Studies key community issues at all government levels in an unbiased manner.
- Enables people to seek positive solutions to public policy issues through education and conflict management.
Donations to the Education Fund, a 501(c)(3)corporation, are fully tax-deductible where allowed by law.
Since the establishment of the League in
1920, LWV members have pursued
a two-fold mission of education and advocacy. Citizen education, or voter
promotes the active and informed
participation of citizens in government. Through
Voters Service, the League provides nonpartisan,
factual information on government, political
parties, voting procedures, election issues and candidates. The League also encourages
citizens to participate in the electoral process by registering voters, hosting or co-hosting "Candidates Forums."
To have citizens think for themselves and provide
to enable them to make
We do that by issueing a
Voter's Guide and hosting or co-hosting candidate forums.
In addition to the voters'
guide and candidates forums, Voter Services also
updates our "They Represent You" (TRY) booklet on a yearly basis.
