Leave a legacy

Because protecting our democracy is a job for generations.

Although the landscape of government has often changed in unexpected ways, since 1920, the League of Women Voters has pursued education and advocacy to protect democracy and the right to vote through informed and active participation in government and increased understanding of major public policy issues.

Recently League has been involved in numerous court cases working to defend the right to vote for millions of Americans. The Washington State Legislature is actively debating laws that affect election/voting rights, gun control, transportation, climate issues, and education. LWVWA has well researched policy information on these issues and advocates in Olympia.

What issues and threats might democracy face in 20, 30, or 90 years? 

A gift through your estate can help ensure that the LWVWA will be there — proud, principled, unflinching, and effective.

When you name the LWVWA or LWVWA Education Fund to receive a gift through your estate, you play a personal role in protecting democracy’s future.

You can make a legacy gift in a variety of ways, including an outright bequest or by designating LWVWA/LWVWA Education Fund as a beneficiary to your retirement assets or life insurance policy.
