Friend, the dollar-for-dollar match is such a great opportunity to support the League and all of our work to defend voters’ rights, I wanted to make sure you didn’t miss my earlier message.

I hope you can help us take advantage of this terrific opportunity.

Thank you!


Dear Friend,

This is exciting news I need to share with you immediately—to make sure the League of Women Voters has the resources needed to defend voters’ rights and increase participation in next year’s elections, a group of generous donors just offered to match, dollar-for-dollar, every gift we receive, up to $50,000!

This is a terrific opportunity to make your tax-deductible year-end gift go TWICE as far—but only if we receive it by December 31st.

Will you take a moment right now to double the impact of your generosity?

This matching gift couldn’t come at a better time, because it’s critical that we move into 2016 with the resources needed to fight anti-voter laws and special interests.

With your support we’ll continue to lead the fight against outrageous new assaults on voters' rights in 2016:

  • Cutbacks in early voting and restrictive voter ID laws that disproportionately affect the elderly, low-income communities, communities of color, and young voters.
  • Gerrymandered legislative districts that allow elected officials to pick their voters instead of the other way around.
  • An unprecedented attempt by billionaires and special interest groups to drown out the voice of voters by pouring billions into unaccountable Super PACs.

But we also know that democracy’s best defense is participation in our elections. So we’ll be doing what the League does better than anyone:

  • Registering tens of thousands of new voters, especially young voters in communities of color and low-income areas through our Be Counted – Youth Vote 2016 campaign.
  •  Helping voters overcome obstacles imposed in states across the country following the 2013 U.S. Supreme Court decision that gutted key provisions of the Voting Rights Act.
  •  Arming voters with everything they need to know before they head to the polls through VOTE411.org. 

We have never had greater need of the steadfast commitment of grassroots supporters like you.

Please rush your most generous contribution to the League of Women Voters Education Fund right now.

And remember, every dollar you send will be doubled with the matching funds and go TWICE as far.

Please, act today … and thank you for Making Democracy Work®!
 
Sincerely,

Elisabeth MacNamara
Chair, LWVEF

P.S. With the dollar-for-dollar match, your gift will go twice as far. Please be as generous as possible. Thank you again!
