There are many ways you can support the League of Women Voters in Minneapolis.
Becoming a member will open a myriad of opportunities for leadership, education and working with people who share your passion for participatory democracy.
Making a donation will support the non-partisan work the League does in our community.
You don’t have to be a member to volunteer, though being a member connects you with other members and ensures ongoing information about volunteer opportunities. We encourage you to join online.
If you know a specific LWV Mpls project or program in which you are interested, we will be happy to connect you with others working in that area. A list of typical volunteer activities is listed below. In general, there are four types of LWV volunteer commitments:
- One-time activities, e.g., helping register voters
- Short-term projects, e.g., a fundraiser
- Committees, e.g., to study an issue
- Leadership positions, e.g., committee chair or board member
