Henderson County LWV Education Fund - "The Francee Sherman Fund"

In 1963, Francee Sherman became the League of Women Voters Henderson County’s first president.  She had such strong convictions about the good work of League that she left money in her will to create a fund to provide money for educational projects that benefit our membership. Such grants have paid for guest speakers, the printing of Know Your Local Government, and educating our members.

In 2022, LWVHC merged with the LWV Education Fund to form one non-profit organization: Henderson County League of Women Voters Education Fund /DBA League of Women Voters Henderson County.

Henderson County League of Women Voters Education Fund /DBA League of Women Voters Henderson County is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, and donations to it are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Your donation to LWVHC will carry on Francee's legacy and help to educate, advocate, and insure the future of the League of Women Voters of Henderson County
