The Big Share is back and the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin is excited to be participating again this year.

Spread the word that March 5, 2019 is going to be a big day! It's the day of The Big Share. And what is The Big Share? The Big Share is a single day of online giving hosted by Community Shares of Wisconsin with matching grants and prizes dedicated to supporting nearly 70 incredible nonprofits that improve our communities, including the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin.

Your support enables us to meet the needs of a growing membership, serve local Leagues across the state, and prepare for both the League's 100th birthday and commemoration events for the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.

Your support directly funds the vital work the League does for voter protections, fair maps, and fair courts; increases our impact in our outreach efforts to get out the vote; and allows us to track and take action on bills currently moving through the Legislature.

We are empowering voters.

We are defending democracy.

We are taking on big challenges as we enter our second century.

Help support our mission and work.

Contributors to the League understand the value of their gift. Here are a few reasons donors like you told to us why they give to LWVWI:

  • "The League helps voters understand the issues before we vote. We need an informed electorate if we want a strong democracy."
  • "In gratitude to the brave and tenacious suffragists nearly 100 years ago who worked hard to make it possible that we can vote. Let's not take that privilege for granted."
  • "LWV is working to protect the foundations of our democracy. I believe supporting them is the right thing to do."
  • "The LWV is one of the foremost group of engaged citizen defending democracy that I know of. I am honored to be a member and pleased to donate."

Today when you give to LWVWI through The Big Share, tell us your reasons why you support the League.

Thank you for investing in LWVWI and supporting our commitment to voter education and advocacy work throughout Wisconsin.
