Matching Gift Opportunity!

Don't miss your chance to have your year-end donation doubled! Between now and December 10, your gift goes twice as far! Donate Now!

Dear Friend,

This week I sent you a letter to let you know about our Year End Matching Gift Fund, set up in honor of our new executive director, Dr. Wylecia Wiggs Harris.

Thanks to a generous group of supporters, all gifts made to the League by December 10 will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000. That means your tax-deductible gift to the League of Women Voters Education Fund will go twice as far!

The first votes for the presidential election will be cast in less than 90 days. 2016 will be the first presidential election where Americans will not have the full protection of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA) since the U.S. Supreme Court gutted key provisions.

This will also be the first national election where many states will be able to enforce discriminatory anti-voter laws that were once prohibited under the VRA. That means voters face more obstacles to get to the ballot box than at any other time in recent memory.

But with your support, which goes twice as far thanks to our Year End Matching Gift Fund, we can protect, register and educate more voters to counter the attacks on the rights of voters and renew our democracy in 2016.

As a Leader for Democracy, I know you understand how important our work is to protecting our democracy and ensuring our elections are decided by voters, not deep-pocketed special interests.

I hope I can count on you to stand with the League in 2016 by making a generous donation today. And remember, your gift will be matched, dollar-for-dollar!
