MEMBERSHIP OPTIONS FOR NEW/RENEWING MEMBERS

Here is an explanation of our membership dues structure:

  • Dues are tax-deductible.
  • League annual dues for one person are $60.
  • Adding a person or persons from your household is $30 each per year. The household shares printed membership materials. However, online communication goes to each person's email.
  • Student dues are $5 per year.
  • You may also pay more than $60 for an annual membership and help us expand our organization by supporting others to join.
  • You may pay an amount that fits your budget.

After paying members' state and national dues, the LWV Kent receives about $4 per member from a standard $60 membership. With membership at about 140, we must find other ways to raise funds to sustain our organization. 

We are asking members to consider:
  • Pay by check so LWV Kent benefits from your membership dollars at the local level. Make your check for new or renewing memberships payable to LWV Kent and mail to: G. Pytel, 613 N. Willow St., Kent, Ohio, 44240.
  • If paying online, and we realize that is a necessity for a growing number of members, please consider covering the PayPal processing cost of your membership. PayPal charges 2.9 percent and $.30 per transaction. That amounts to the following or an approximation:

     SELECTED DUES AMOUNT PROCESSING FEE
    $5 (Student Dues) $0.45
    $10 $0.60
    $20  $0.88
    $30 (Added Household Member) $1.17
    $40 $1.46
    $50 $1.75
    $60 (Standard Annual Dues) $2.04
