The League depends on citizens like you to support our important work in providing resources on elections and government processes throughout the year. The world is more complicated and everyone is pressed for time, but League members are committed to increasing access and curating information to make participation in the democratic process easier for all.
There are four key ways that you can support the LWVHC financially, and we strongly encourage you to consider any and all that you can.
There are two key ways to support the production of the Voters Guides, and the work of the League as a whole. You can donate as part of our funding drive, or buy an ad in the guide.
The guide reaches at least 40,000 Howard County Voters in the Primary Election and again in the General. Consider buying an ad and reaching this group.
You can donate directly to the LWVHC Education Fund, a 501(c)3. Donations to the Ed Fund, a charitable organization, are tax deductible.
Seriously, join us! We truly want the membership of the LWVHC to reflect the population of Howard County. In this way, we increased the quality and thoroughness of the materials we produce and can do a far better job of reaching out to all members of the community. League members get regular updates on the progress of our work, can vote on leadership and new policy positions, and participate in social events and education sessions.
You can support the LWVHC through our fundraisers.
