Dues & Donations online Learn More
- Pay your annual LWVNH dues or make a donation or both online, using Donorbox, a secure payment method using your bank account or credit card. You may also join and pay your first year's dues via this webpage. "Donorbox" works similar to PayPal, but is designed for non-profits like League of Women Voters. Don't worry about the name: we will figure out whether you are paying your dues, joining for the first time, or making a donation. You can add a note in the "write a comment" box to make sure.
Because there is a fee attached to accepting payments this way, we request that your payment include the fee. If this is not acceptable to you, you may opt out when you go through the payment steps.
