Our Communications Network

Membership in the LWV includes not only membership in the LWV-PWFA Local League, but membership in the LWV of Virginia (LWV-VA), and the LWV of the United States (LWVUS). LWV-PWFA members keep connected through a communication network of messages from each LWV level.

    LWVUS. The LWVUS issues a bi-monthly newsletter, “LWV League Update,” from the desk of the LWUS national President. Included is information on the calendar of webinars and virtual meetings, action taken, resources, LWV business, letters and memos issued, Leagues in the news, and LWVUS staff highlights.
    LWV-VA. The LWV-VA issues a monthly newsletter, “Virginia VOTER,” which includes a variety of State-level information articles. Newsletters are posted on the LWV-VA website (www.lwv-va.org) by date.
    LWV-PWFA. The LWV-PWFA employs several communication tools to keep members both informed and to sign up for events and activity participation opportunities: Website www.princewiliamlwv.org, semi-monthly “blasts” by email, a quarterly newsletter, Facebook, and SignUp Genius.

Financial Resources

League Funding is derived from several resources, 1) Member Annual Dues, the primary source of operating funds (Not tax deductible), 2) The Education Fund, income raised through donations (Tax deductible), 3) Grants, and 4) LWV Wares Boutique.

    1) Member Dues. Member Annual Dues are the primary source of operating funds. There are 6 Classes of Membership.
    2) Education Fund. The purpose of the Education Fund is to promote political responsibility through informed and active participation in government. Income is raised through donation campaigns conducted periodically. Donations are tax deductible. The Fund operates exclusively for education purposes, including but not limited to the following:
    A) To build participation in the democratic process,
    B) To study public policy issues in Virginia in an unbiased, nonpartisan manner, and
    C) To educate and empower people to seek positive solutions to public policy issues.

The LWVUS acts as a Trustee for the LWV-PWFA Education Fund account. The LWVUS/EF operates the Local Education Fund program at no cost to participating Leagues. The program allows Local Leagues that are not incorporated 501(c)(3) organizations to collect tax deductible donations.

    3) Grants. The League benefits from Grant Programs, in particular to fund specific public education projects or programs. In addition to grant programs from public and private sources, the LWVUS provides Local Leagues with pass-through grant funding. Pass-through Grant opportunities are announced via the League “Update Newsletter” email. The LWVUS national office provides training, toolkits, visibility resources and more as part of the grant process and is available to work with the Grantee Local Leagues to address any issues throughout the Grant period. The LWVUS point of contact is listed in the Grant contract.
    4) LWV Market Place. The League raises funds through the sale of LWV-related items available to both members and the public.
