The League has two different funds to which you may contribute. One is our General Operating Fund which is NOT tax deductible. This can be used for any of our expenses such as advocacy, general operating expenses and even for education purposes. The LWV of Marion County Education Fund is limited to those things we can do by law for our 501(c)(3) designation. We use this to keep our voters in the county informed about upcoming elections, issues (both pro and con) and candidates, etc.
