The League does not support nor oppose candidates per its nonpartisan policy.
We welcome members and others to sponsor memberships. A membership to the League is a great way to get your children or parents more involved in civic life!
We recognize that our members and potential members live busy lives and may not be able to commit time to the League on a regular basis. We welcome members at all commitment levels, as your dues and donations allow us to continue our hands-on work to safeguard democracy.
Membership dues paid to our local League are split three ways: the national League ($28), the state League ($14), and our Charleston Area League ($3). None of the funding provided to the state or local Leagues is used for salaries because neither employ paid staff. The programs and services of the League of Women Voters of the Charleston Area are primarily provided through the generous donations of our members and others.
