DONATE: LWVFL Advocacy Fund

LWVFL is a powerful force for democracy. It needs your contribution to promote the values of representative government with hands-on work in Tallahassee and around the state. With your donation, we’ll continue our proven track record of lobbying the Legislature on good government issues of concern to you. Donations to the LWVF Advocacy Fund are not tax deductible.

The League of Women Voters of Florida, Inc. is registered with The Florida Division of Consumer Services (registration number CH2212). A COPY OF THE OFFICIAL REGISTRATION AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE DIVISION OF CONSUMER SERVICES BY CALLING TOLL-FREE WITHIN THE STATE. REGISTRATION DOES NOT IMPLY ENDORSEMENT, APPROVAL, OR RECOMMENDATION BY THE STATE. The Division of Consumer Services may be reached at 1-800-HELP-FLA (435-7352) or online at www.FloridaConsumerHelp.com.

DONATE: Become a Harry T. Burn Level Donor

The LWVFL Harry T. Burn Society is a committee comprised of donors who support the League’s efforts at both the state and local levels by contributing $1,000 or more per year.

Harry T. Burn was the youngest member of the 1920 State Legislature in Tennessee. His unanticipated “aye” vote broke the tie in the Tennessee House of Representatives and ensured ratification of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote. Thirty-five other states had approved the amendment for ratification into the U.S. Constitution, and only one more state was needed.

By contributing $1,000 or more per year, Harry T. Burn Society members ensure that the League is better endowed as it strives to fulfill its numerous priorities. Your gift can be made all at one time or broken up over the course of the year. Maximize the impact of your gift by directing it to either the tax-deductible Education Fund or the non-tax-deductible Advocacy Fund, or split it between the two. You may choose to share a portion of your gift with your local League chapter, thereby contributing to progress at both the state and local levels.

In appreciation for your support of LWVFL’s work, Harry T. Burn Society members receive:

  • Early registration for invitation-only League trips
  • Honorary Host Committee Membership
  • Tickets to League galas throughout the state
  • Recognition in The Florida Voter newsletter
  • Personalized Harry T. Burn Society name tag

DONATE: Super Citizen Program

Help provide critical support to the League by becoming a Super Citizen, or monthly donor. This reliable funding gives us the resources for the ongoing battle for good government and to pursue our mission of voter education. It also lets you know your contribution status is always current and we won’t bother you with wasted solicitations. Contact us to become a Super Citizen!

DONATE: Give a Gift of Stock

If you would prefer to make a donation of stock, rather than a financial contribution or estate charitable giving, please contact us.

Volunteer: Join a LWVF Voter Registration Drive

LWVFL Voter Services include voter registration drives, candidate forums, public informational meetings and voter guides. Because of the sensitive nature of voter registration in Florida, LWVFL requires that volunteers who register voters on our behalf MUST be League members. If you are a league member and would like to participate in this drive, please contact us for more information.

DONATE: LWVFL Education Fund

Free and open access to information is essential. LWVFL educates people about issues of the day, the political process, and how to make informed choices. Your tax-deductible donation to the League of Women Voters of Florida Education Fund helps us sustain our voter registration and voter education work in Florida, broaden our educational mission, and embark on new ventures.

The League of Women Voters of Florida Education Fund, Inc. is registered with The Florida Division of Consumer Services (registration number CH2211). A COPY OF THE OFFICIAL REGISTRATION AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE DIVISION OF CONSUMER SERVICES BY CALLING TOLL-FREE WITHIN THE STATE.

DONATE: Leave the Legacy of Democracy

Include LWVFL in your estate plans. Help us continue our efforts to make democracy work for generations of citizens to come. The League will invest your bequest gift in the work you care about most. Consider including the League in your will, trust, insurance policy, retirement plan, or direct gift planning. Florida’s future voters thank you.

To include the League as a beneficiary of a will or trust, use the following language:

“I give, devise and bequeath to the League of Women Voters of Florida [Education Fund], a charitable organization formed in the state of Florida, with offices at 540 Beverly Court, Tallahassee, FL 32301, [the sum of $____ ] OR [ ____ percentage of residuary estate].”

Volunteer: Internship Program

LWVFL is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Interns are a key part of the League and can benefit by gaining valuable experience in a nonprofit organization and by receiving a letter of recommendation. All our Tallahassee internships are unpaid, but the experience will improve your employment opportunities in the future.

The League is always accepting applications for interns in Tallahassee, and limited internship opportunities may be available in other parts of Florida.

Volunteer: Statewide Speakers Bureau

League members willing to volunteer in our statewide Speakers Bureau are in great demand. Using skills perfected in their professional lives or attained through experience and LWVF training, speakers are provided with material and presentation guidelines.

LWVF Speakers Bureau members have presented at hundreds of engagements with organizations including Tiger Bay Clubs, local colleges and universities, Chambers of Commerce, Kiwanis Clubs, Rotary Clubs, and numerous community and residential groups. With audiences of 20 to 200 or more, our nonpartisan speakers educate citizens on state and local issues, including ballot amendments, legislative session updates, healthcare, gun laws, environmental and water issues, redistricting, elections laws, and local government topics of interest.

Currently, the League has materials available and presenters prepared to speak on a variety of timely topics. If you know an organization that could benefit from one of our speaking engagements, or if you are a League member who would like to volunteer for the Speakers Bureau, please contact us.
