The League of Women Voters of Portland relies on donations from people like you to fund our voter education and advocacy activities.  Your gift will extend our volunteers’ efforts to empower citizens, inform voters, and make democracy work. If you are already a member of the League–thank you!–but know that the bulk of your membership dues go to the state and national leagues, whereas your donation will stay here in Portland.

Together, we can be a force for change. Members receive a monthly newsletter, a Voter’s Guide before every election, invitations to events with leaders in the Portland community, and the chance to meet with other members to discuss what’s going on in Portland.
