Bequests

Over the years, bequests large and small have played a critical role in providing for the League’s immediate needs and its long-term vitality and effectiveness.

A gift to the League of Women Voters Education Fund (LWVEF) qualifies for a federal estate tax deduction and will support the League’s important civic improvement, citizen engagement and advocacy activities. A bequest can be an ideal way to honor a loved one or to support particular League activities in perpetuity.

Including the League in your will can be as simple as adding a codicil or amendment to your current will. The following is suggested language for your lawyer to use to draft a bequest to the LWVEF.

“I bequeath to the League of Women Voters Education Fund, a charitable trust formed in the District of Columbia, with offices at 1730 M Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20036, (specify gift amount or property).”
