Be a philanthropist and get your household shopping done at the same time.  Shop Boscov, a family owned Erie County department store, on Wednesday, October 14th, and Thursday, October 15th.  When you step up to the register, just let the associate know that you are a friend supporting the League of Women Voters Erie County Chapter.  The store will then send the League a check for 5% of your shopping total.  This is really a truly wonderful service the Boscov family is making available to nonprofits in our Erie Community.

Why give to the League of Women Voters?

The year 2020 has been an extra special year for the Erie League as we commemorate, along with Erie County, the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and celebrate 100 years since our founding. You will see the new public art mural appear at 7th and State streets, "Her Voice, Her Vote", a special television producation on WQLN PBS, "The Story of the Justice Bell and the Women's Suffrage Movement" airing twice in August, the "Every Woman" art exhibit, August 28th at Artlore Studio and there will still be some 2020 suffrage centennial calendar events announced.  One coming up at the Sight Center of NW PA is a talk on Helen Keller who was a suffragaist--August, 19th, 12 Noon, the Sight Center. Another is a self guided suffragist walk at the Erie Cementery with details to be announced soon.  With all of these extra special projects coming to fruition, the League of Women Voters Erie County Chapter will now immerse our efforts in voter registration and continuing to educate on Pennsylvania election reform. Volunteers to assist are welcome. We are training now! There is an election coming! Please vote by mail or in person on November 3rd.  The League of Women Voters voting and election site won a first place  2020 "Webby Award" in its category--Vote411.org . It is the LWV go to website for all election information. Also candidate debates are in the works with Erie News Now and WQLN set to air in the latter part of September.  League members work hard every day for our Erie County Citizens.  Please remember us on Erie Gives Day, Tuesday, August 11th. 

Donors like you have made us the most trusted voice in positive solutions to public policy issues. Please note that your gift to the League of Women Voters, a 501(c)4 organization, may not be NOT tax-deductible (see below).

The League of Women Voters never supports or opposes candidates for office or political parties.  Elections and voting are core concerns for the League of Women Voters.  The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in governmentworks to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. The League of Women Voters Nonpartisan Policy requests members who engage in political activities that are partisan in nature to do so as individuals, not as members of the League
