Donating vs. Membership
As you undoubtedly know, when you join our local LWV of Hays County, you are also joining something much bigger – the State and National LWV organizations. What you may not know is that most of what you pay in annual dues, collected by our local League, is sent to pay for dues in these organizations. For the combined memberships, the current annual dues are $60.00 for an individual and $90.00 for a household.
This year we expect to collect about $3,300 in dues, but from that we will pay almost $3,000 to the State and National organizations. The remaining $300 stays with our local League. Obviously, we cannot provide the services our members and citizens expect on $300 a year!
Our Fundraisers – Funding Local Services
For over 30 years our primary source of revenue has been the annual Wine/Beer Tasting and Silent Auction each January. This single fundraiser has historically supported all of our Hays County League activities for the entire year. We count on the profits from this one event to make our budget!
Since we grew considerably in numbers and services over the last midterm election cycle, spreading to Dripping Springs with the new Team DS group, and hope to grow to actively include the Kyle-Buda area, we will be expanding the number of fundraisers and the communities in which they are held.
By becoming a donor, supporting our annual or other fundraising event, or all of the above, you provide essential support to the local services we provide.
LWV Hays County is widely known and respected for the wide range of voter services it provides: voter registration drives, informational programs, local forums and debates, Vote411 online, and the distribution of the printed Voters Guides in local newspapers. All are services that citizens throughout Hay County rely on for unbiased election information.
