  • Upload this card template to your League’s site and allow donors to immediately print out a card that they can give to the recipient of the gift.

  • While it is perhaps not the reason that anyone joins the League, record keeping (i.e., whose membership is current and whose is not) is a vital part of an effective and efficient organization. We need to know and understand what our resources are. Whether you are asking people to join the League for the first time or to renew their membership, a lot of the same principles apply. The difference is that when you are asking someone to renew their membership, they usually have a general understanding of what it is the League does, so you have the ability to focus on the specific projects that have been made possible by your members and their dues.

  • This year, the League will participate in the second annual #GivingTuesday campaign on December 3, 2013.
