Our Giving Levels

The League of Women Voters of the Cincinnati Area remembers the hard work and dedication of our foremothers with our giving levels. With each level, we honor a woman who has made a difference in the civil rights of all citizens.

Our highest level ($5,000 and above) is named for Lydia Chapin Taft, the first woman to vote in Colonial America in 1756.

Our next level ($1,000 - $4,999) is named for Celia Lazarus, LWVCA president from 1950-1952, who was well-known for her fundraising abilities for our local League.

Agnes Hilton ($500-$999) was the second president of LWVCA from 1922-24. She was a suffragist and one of the founders of the Cincinnati Charter Committee and later served as LWV Ohio president.

The Mary Gorman McManus Level ($250-$499) is named for our LWVCA president from 1946-1948, who served as director of Ohio Public Welfare, now known as Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

The next level ($100-$249) is named in honor of Harriet Iglauer, who was LWVCA president from 1964-1966 and was past president of the LWV of Grand Rapids, Michigan. She also served on both the Michigan and Ohio State LWV Boards.

The following level ($99 and below) is named for Gloria Walker, who served as LWVCA president from 1989-1991, remembered for her passion for growing our League's membership ranks.

Our planned giving society, the Martha B. Taft Society, is named for LWVCA's first president, who served from 1920-1922 and again in 1932-1934.

We take much inspiration from those who came before us. Thank you for your continued support of the League of Women Voters!
