Join the movement and support our work on #GivingTuesday

Today is #GivingTuesday — an international day of giving to honor the spirit of generosity and the work of organizations like the League of Women Voters that make our communities a better place.

The League strengthens our nation through increased civic engagement and participation in our democracy.

One of the most essential ways your support can help the League make a citizen-led democracy a reality is by ensuring more citizens have access to the vote — our most fundamental democratic duty and right.

It is because of concerned citizens like you that the League is able to put our plans into action and empower more citizens to cast their votes and have them counted. When you support the League, you give back to your community by supporting our vibrant democracy — a democracy we all share.

#GivingTuesday is propelled by those who believe that passion and commitment can make a difference. Please support the League of Women Voters Education Fund by making a generous, tax-deductible gift of $25, $35 or more right now.

The League believes that voter participation is the foundation of our democracy — with 1 in 4 Americans not registered to vote and nearly 25 percent of registered voters not making it to the polls for major elections, it's essential that the League continues to educate and empower new voters.

Our democracy depends on the involvement of informed citizens. By connecting people with the information they need, the League helps to strengthen our democracy and ensure that all citizens can have a say in the issues that impact their lives and communities.

No other organization has the League's knowledge, experience and capability to protect and expand the electorate and ensure America's elections are free, fair and accessible to every citizen. I hope you will take part in #GivingTuesday and show your support for the League by making a tax-deductible gift today.

As we prepare for 2014 and the critical midterm elections, the League is working harder than ever to register new voters, hold more candidate forums and empower millions of voters to participate in our electoral process. At the same time, we're working to keep big money out of our elections and making sure we have necessary environmental regulations to protect our planet for future generations.

The League of Women Voters is a true grassroots organization, and we are proudly nonpartisan — but our work depends on the generosity of League members and supporters like you. Please support the League by making a tax-deductible gift today.

Thank you for your spirit of generosity, and for Making Democracy Work®.
