Support the League of Women Voters

The League of Women Voters of New Mexico depends on the generosity of individual supporters and members, foundations, and corporations to fund its citizen education and advocacy activities. You can contribute to the League online or you can download the contributions form and send it in with your check.

New giving options! By going through Amazon Smiles or Smith's Food & Drug Stores, you can contribute to the League of Women Voters of Central New Mexico's Education Fund through your purchases. Via the JoAnne Ramponi Society, you can also give through your will or estate plan.

LWVCNM Education Fund
The Voters' Guide is funded by the Ed Fund

The Voters' Guide is funded by the LWVCNM Education Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization. For the 2016 November election, the League distributed 30,000 copies of its non-partisan Voters' Guide throughout Bernalillo and Sandoval Counties - all this was made possible by your contributions! Although the Voters' Guide is produced and distributed entirely by volunteer labor, the League requires contributions to cover printing expenses.

The League of Women Voters Education Fund provides non-partisan voter education to citizens on issues and candidates by conducting and/or sponsoring public discussion, forums, panels, lectures, workshops and other similar programs, and by publishing books, leaflets, pamphlets, and other educational materials on issues and candidates for distribution to the public. This includes the popular Voters' Guide and Who's Who, a directory of elected public officials and how to contact them.

Contributions to the Education fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, are tax-deductible.

LWVCNM Operating Fund

A League unit meeting

Contributions to the League of Women Voters of Central New Mexico Operating Fund are used to conduct studies, hold Lobbying Workshops for all citizens, support our office operations, publish our monthly newsletter, and conduct studies, whereby the League's positions on issues of concern to the public are decided by consensus.

Because the LWVCNM Operating Fund is a 501(c)(4) organization, contributions are not tax-deductible, but are greatly appreciated!
