Grant Management
The League of Women Voters of NYS Education Foundation Inc. (LWVNYSEF) is a separate 501(c) 3 organization that permits tax-deductible donations for educational programs. Local Leagues can be “agents” under LWVNYSEF and thereby accept tax-deductible donations to be used for their own educational programs. Guidelines MUST be followed to maintain the charitable organization status.
