MEMBERSHIP DUES STRUCTURE FOR NEW/RENEWING MEMBERS

  • League annual dues for one person are $70.
  • Adding a person or persons from your household is $35 each per year. The household shares printed membership materials. However, online communication goes to each person's email.
  • If you are 29 years of age or under, membership is only $10! 
  • You may make an additional contribution and help us expand our organization by supporting others to join.

After paying members' state and national dues, LWV of the Akron Area receives about $15 per member from a standard $70 membership. With membership at about 100, we must find other ways to raise funds to sustain our organization. 

We ask members to consider these options:

  • Paying by check so LWV of the Akron Area fully benefits from your membership dollars without the cost of PayPal processing fees of more than $2 for a single $70 membership. Make your check for new or renewing memberships payable to LWVAA and mail to: LWVAA, P.O. Box 5449, Akron, OH 44334.
  • Paying online via PayPal.
  • Making an additional contribution:
    to LWVAA (not tax-deductible)
    to LWVAA Education Fund (tax-deductible)

Because LWVAA conducts advocacy we are organized as a 501(c)(4), therefore dues are not tax-deductible.  You can make a tax-deductible contribution through the LWVAA Education Fund.
