Donate or Sponsor and Make a Difference

The League of Women in Government (LWG) serves as the umbrella organization to support local and statewide organizations that advance women in local government leadership. Your donation or sponsorship directly helps us fulfill that mission.

For Individual Donors: Why The League Doesn’t Charge a Flat Membership Fee

The League began with a simple mission — find ways to help women advance in local government. What the group learned along the way is people have varying degrees of ability to pay to belong to a professional organization/association. So the League is officially a pay what you can organizaton. If your situation doesn’t allow you to contribute financially, that’s cool. Become a member and stay a member. You can pay it forward in another way. Share your ideas, tell us about learning opportunities in your area, write an article for our blog post, help us tweet information, mentor an up and comer, and so on. We need your brain power to grow our network which helps everyone!

If you have the financial means to pay it forward to others who can’t, the League appreciates any and all donations. Every little bit helps. In fact, we rely on the generosity of people like YOU for support. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to meet our goals or achieve our mission. Just click the DONATE button below and follow the prompts. Oh, and because the League is a volunteer based organization, has no employees and pays no salaries, 100 percent of your contribution goes towards professional development/training, networking opportunities, website content and events with our partner organizations.

The League is a 501(c)3 so your contribution is tax deductible. Other questions about donations? Email the League at INFO@LeagueOfWomenInGovernment.org.
