How are membership dues used?

Membership dues paid to our local League are split three ways: the national League ($32), the state League ($14), and our Charleston Area League ($4). Our local league is run entirely by volunteers. The programs and services of the League of Women Voters of the Charleston Area are primarily provided through the generous donations of our members and others. 

I'm in! How do I join? Or renew my membership?

New and renewing members have the following payment options:

  • By mail: Mail a check ($50 for individual membership, $75 for household membership) addressed to LWVCA, PO Box 20173, Charleston, SC 29413. Please be sure to include your phone number and email address so that we can be in touch with you!

Extend your impact with an optional donation

The League of Women Voters recently celebrated its 103rd anniversary. That's 103 years of empowering voters and defending democracy.

You can be a part of this long legacy by joining or renewing your membership... or you can take an extra step and contribute $103 to mark the anniversary!

Fifty dollars makes you a full-fledged member of the National, State, and Charleston Area League of Women Voters and the additional donation goes directly to LWV Charleston Area in support of our work to register and educate voters and advocate for voter rights in a time when they are being threatened. PayPal fees are waived with additional donations.

By renewing your membership (and perhaps adding a donation), you'll be a part of the TEAM who can make a difference!

Add your voice to a powerful force of over 150,000 members in all 50 states, including more than 200 members in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties. You automatically become a member of LWV of South Carolina and LWV of the United States too, and receive LWVSC's The South Carolina Voter.

Thank you for your support!
