Sources of Funding

The League is a nonprofit organization that relies on dues and contributions to operate and to achieve its goals. Support comes from members, nonmembers, and the community at large.

Each local league decides the amount of its dues and the method for collecting them. From its funds, the local league pays a Per Member Payment (PMF) to support both the national and state or regional League.

To finance its programs, the League also conducts fund raising campaigns at each level. Since Leagues are lobbying organizations, donations for advocacy activities and League dues are not tax deductible. However, education funds at the local, state, and national levels qualify as 501(c)(3) organizations under the Internal Revenue Code and may accept tax-deductible contributions. These funds are used exclusively for services to voters, impartial information on governmental issues, and educational and research projects.
