A healthy League regards fundraising more as a matter of fund development, a process of building long-term relationships with your League?s supporters, in order to build a base of support that will sustain, for the long-term, the broad range of work your League accomplishes in issue advocacy, voter service, and citizen education and engagement.

Fund development requires educating your donors about, and ultimately engaging them with, the value that your League provides to your community, your state, our nation and, ultimately, our world. Fund development is about developing an ethic within your donors about the importance of investing in the League of Women Voters.

By no means exhaustive, the following resources are intended to assist you and the members of your board with your League's fund development efforts. We continue to build this body of resources and you are also encouraged to join the LWV development list serve
