Navy Voter=$1,100 Teal Voter=$600. $100 of your donation supports our daily operations and membership development. Both membership levels have the same benefits. 100% of your contribution is a charitable donation.

*For 2021, we will replace our $100,000 transformational grants with incremental $50,000 unrestricted grants in response to Covid-related needs in the community.

As a volunteer-driven organization, we rely on member expertise to move us forward. We offer many ways to get involved and are sensitive to busy schedules. So, if you're good at numbers, social media, recruitment, event planning, or have another specific talent to offer, please consider volunteering your time. If you are interested in joining the leadership team, please email Elaine McCormick.
