League of Women Voters Education Fund

The League of Women Voters Education Fund works to encourage the active and informed participation of citizens in government and to increase understanding of major public policy issues.


The League of Women Voters Education Fund (LWVEF) has been a historic name in fields of civic engagement and elections. We believe that with calculated recalibration, the organization can update its mission and the means they use to achieve progress in their field. As an opportunity to be an effective partner with this grant, the Democracy Fund supports the League as they modernize the organization, build a framework that is more culturally relevant, and efficiently generating change in their areas of concentration. Supporting these efforts will ultimately strengthen the role of the LWVEF national office and open the door for local chapters to better aligned to organizational goals while improving the field of election administration reform.
