Read the League's motion to intervene in Kobach et al v. Election Assistance Commission (EAC).

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. This will allow individuals to give throughout the holiday season. (Leagues are encouraged to thank and acknowledge donors through their regular mechanisms for all donations to the organization.)

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.

The League joined 78 organizations on a letter to Congress opposing legislation from Representative Whitfield and Senator Manchin. The legislation would allow power plants to continue dumping unlimited amounts of carbon pollution into the air, contributing to the climate change that puts our health and communities at risk with devastating extreme weather events. Ensuring that there are limits on carbon pollution from power plants is an issue that the League has been very active on and this legislation goes against everything the League has worked for.

*Note this post has been updated to refelect additional supportive organizations who have joined this letter. This letter was first sent in November 2013 and was resent in January 2014.

This year, the League will participate in the second annual #GivingTuesday campaign on December 3, 2013. In the same way that retail stores come together to offer deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday brings the nonprofit community together on a universal platform to raise awareness about the importance of supporting our valuable missions and work.
