June 2018 at the LWVMD Council meeting the board announced the creation of the Nancy Soreng Young Professional Advancement Fund. This fund is now live on our website and open for donations to support LWVMD’s efforts to engaged & advance young professionals in the spirit of Nancy Soreng, who has always provided guidance and mentorship to young League members, ensuring that LWVMD’s work endures for many generations to come.
Nancy Soreng has dedicated her life to advancing our democracy and safeguarding the well-being of our communities for today’s generation and the next. In her many League roles, she has been a tireless and omnipresent force in Maryland and beyond. Of all the contributions Nancy has made to the League, one is unique and exemplary: as a “never say no” mentor, Nancy has unstintingly trained new leaders ensuring a lasting League legacy.
LWVMD has been blessed and inspired by the determination and dedication of Nancy Soreng. She has generously shared her knowledge and experience and found new ways to engage future generations. This fund is but one small way we can honor Nancy’s selfless and unending commitment to service.
This fund in her name will be used to provide future generations the opportunity to learn from the League’s tradition of nonpartisan voter education and issue-based advocacy. It will serve to empower young people by providing stipends for interns.
The Nancy Soreng Young Professional Advancement Fund is a subset of the LWVMD 501(c)3 Education Fund, and therefore donations are fully tax deductible.
Checks should be made out to “LWVMD-EF”, with the memo indicating Nancy Soreng Young Professional Advancement Fund and mailed to 111 Cathedral St, Ste 201, Annapolis, MD 21401.Donate
