Donations

Your donations to the League of Women Voters of Virginia Education Fund, a 501(c)(3) are tax-deductible. As a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization, LWV-VA Ed Fund monies support advocacy*, education, and voter service activities. 

Contributions

Your contribution to the League of Women Voters Virginia [General Fund], a 501(c)(4) will not be tax-deductible. These funds are used to support action priorities through advocacy* and lobbying** on specific bills/legislation. Member dues & contributions to this fund are not tax-deductible. 


*Advocacy: Pleading for or against causes and making policy recommendations. Advocacy is about speaking out on issues, not bills or ballot measures. (EX: A community forum, letter to the editor, or legislative office visit about the importance of redistricting reform as an idea are all examples of advocacy.)

**Lobbying: Lobbying can be direct (i.e., to a legislator or government staff) or grassroots (i.e., asking members to take a specific action) and involves action on specific legislation or ballot measures. (EX: Testimony at legislative meetings meant to sway a vote and/or action alerts asking members to contact their legislators in support or opposition of a specific bill or to vote for or against ballot measure is lobbying.)
