Join the League


Who can become a member?

Membership in the League, one of the most respected and effective grassroots organizations in the country, is open to women and men who are at least age 16.

Why should I join?

In addition to supporting the League, your membership gives us the influence needed to provide a voice for the people and be a force for change. You become a member of the New York State League and the United States League when you join the NYC League. You will receive their publications along with our newsletter. You will have the knowledge that you are adding your voice to a powerful force of members from all 50 states. You will be entitled to vote when the League decides what areas to focus on and whether to take a position on an issue. You will be eligible for leadership roles in the League and eligible to be a delegate at the state and national League conventions. And you’ll get a discount when you attend our events!

How much does it cost?

For a single membership, you can choose a level between $75 and $500 (or $25 for students). The LWV of NYC keeps only a small portion of your $75 dues. The rest goes to support the state and national Leagues in their important work. Please consider joining at a higher level! All the extra dues stay with our local League.

Dues are not tax deductible since the League, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization, engages in advocacy.
