Donate to Virginia NOW


Membership and Participation

To become a member of Virginia NOW or any of the local chapter in the state, you must go through National NOW. This page will also allow you to renew or update your membership information.  

You may join either the state chapter or a local chapter, but not both. Membership goes through National NOW so that they can provide you a membership number and record which chapter you’re in.

When you join up this way, your dues make you a member of the state / local chapter of your choice, and a member of National NOW. Please let us know what chapter you’d like to belong to by choosing a chapter (see chapter list).

Dues for all chapters are: $35 for regular membership, $10-34 sliding scale, and $5 for students with valid college ID. Lifetime membership: $1000.

*Note: If you choose not to affiliate with a local chapter, you will be designated as a member-at-large in your state of residence.


Virginia NOW strives to maintain individual privacy as well as making the donation process quick, secure and simple.  Therefore we also happily accept cash and personal checks (please include phone number!) to be mailed to…

P.O. Box 1848
Merrifield, VA 22116-1848

Contributions to Virginia NOW are not tax deductible because of our grassroots lobbying work. Virginia NOW is a non-profit, tax-exempt membership organization working to advance women’s rights.

The State Board of Elections presently requires that donors must provide name, address, phone number, employment information (job title), and employer name and location in order to make a contribution to any political PAC. Thank you.


Virginia NOW is a robust state organization. We maintain a statewide women’s and progressives resources database on our website and are working on several special projects for the public. The most visible of these is the Foremothers Oral History Project, which requires computer/camera equipment, gas money, and sometimes hotel stays.

We are also building a document and photograph archive of the history of Virginia NOW and its affiliated activist organizations. These projects are run through our 501(c)3. We also manage a Political Action Committee, a 501(c)4 that researches and endorses pro-women candidates for state and national office. Through these funds, we actively promote candidates and their events. Additionally, through the 510(c)3, and as a central part of our mission, we directly lobby our commonwealth’s General Assembly and Executive Branch to advocate for women and policies that benefit us and our families.

Annual dues do not cover the expenses of those activities. That’s where donations come in, and we have several options for you to donate to Virginia NOW.

Shine on in revolution…
