The work of Volunteers and Donors like you have made the League the most trusted voice in positive solutions to public policy issues.
Your Volunteer and Financial support directly impact the League's work to empower and educate citizens and to protect and defend our democracy. Working together we help ensure our elections are free, fair, and accessible; protect our environment, and reduce the influence of money in our elections.
SUPPORT LEAGUE EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES WITH YOUR DONATION
Your financial donations are greatly appreciated and important. They can be tax-deductible, too. Find out the details here:
Is My Donation Tax-deductible?
- Donations made to LWV Solano County Education Fund are tax-deductible. These donations are used strictly for educational activities.
- Donations to LWV Solano County, which is currently a 501(c)4 organization, are NOT tax-deductible. We are working through the process to become a 501(c)3 organization. We will let you know when this process is complete and then all donations to our league will be tax-deductible.

Program Planning & Events (PP&E)
There are so many ways to volunteer with the Events Committee. We are often looking for volunteers to greet people at events and hand out name tags. We often need volunteers to bake cookies or sweets to hand out at events and to staff tables. There is always a need for volunteers to set up and clean up before and after our events.
Special Request: We would love to have a photographer to take pictures at our events.
Essential to the League's mission, Voter Service volunteers help register new voters, build the city and county information for the League's online voter information tool Voter’s Edge, staff Adopt-a-Poll, energize and motivate voters with Get Out the Vote activities, and educate voters with Candidate Forums.
