Many of us wear buttons saying, “League of Women Voters-Not for Women Only.” In 1973, the League’s charter was amended to allow male members and we have benefitted from that change ever since. Any study of the history of woman suffrage includes the men who stood alongside the suffragists and fought for woman to have an equal say in government. So, this Father’s Day, we are giving you a chance to honor the inspiring men in your life. Make a gift to the League of Women Voters of New York State Education Foundation today (EF) and we will send a Father’s Day card on your behalf to a man in your life who has inspired you.
Whether it is your husband, father, son, or someone else who helps you celebrate your civic responsibility, you can honor them this Father’s Day with a gift to the League. Let’s let everyone know that the League is not for women only and that all of us must value our role in this democracy and work together to ensure an educated electorate!
Click here to make a gift by June 10th and we will send a Father’s Day card on your behalf to the person or people you designate. Or, if you prefer to mail in your gift, simply send a check, made out to the LWVNYS EF, to us at 62 Grand Street, Albany, NY 12207. Enclose a brief note indicating that your gift is for the 2016 Father’s Day Tribute and include the name and address of the person you’d like to honor with your gift. To guarantee that your card gets there by Father’s Day, please make sure your gift arrives by Friday, June 10, 2016.
