League of Women Voters

At the League’s National Convention in Washington, DC, last month we re-launched the Leadership Fund as the Fund for Local League Growth, which solely supports the Membership and Leadership Development (MLD) Program.

The MLD Program helps local Leagues connect with their communities and become thriving, growing Leagues that can make (and have been making!) a big impact on our democracy. To kick off this re-launch and reach our goal of coaching all 50 states by 2013, we challenged Convention Delegates to invest in the future of the League and contribute $15,000 to the Fund.

We blew that goal out of the water with a grand total-to-date of $36,626!

It was overwhelming and inspiring that hundreds of members invested in the League and demonstrated their commitment to its future through this special Convention Challenge; I am deeply grateful and inspired by our League members’ dedication to strengthening our mission and our voice in a time when it is needed most.

And right after Convention, our membership staff and National Coaches went on the road to train hundreds of local and state League leaders in Minnesota, Iowa, Florida and Texas. They’ll be in Washington, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Illinois and Oregon over the next few months.

If you made your gift at Convention, we want to take this public opportunity to thank you!  If you know others that you think may also be inspired to help strengthen our great organization in this time when the public is hungry for what the League offers and our democracy urgently needs us, please consider forwarding this message to your friends to encourage them to support the Fund for Local League Growth, too!

If you were not at convention you can still be part of this success by making a gift today! Make your secure gift on-line at www.lwv.org/go/grow131.We’ll mail this special, limited-edition pin to all donors of $50 or more!
