Political Education Memorial Fund P.E.M.

Copyright © Nevada Federation of Republican Women. All Rights Reserved.

The Nevada Federation Political Education Memorial Fund was established July 7, 1989 in memory of one of our members, Dorothy Wright. The money in this fund is used to help in the political education of our members by assisting them, if needed, to attend:

1.NvFRW Board Meetings
2.NvFRW Biennial Conventions
3.NvFRW Leadership Training Classes
4.NvFRW Campaign School

The money in this fund is derived from donations received from our members in any of the following ways:

1.Birthday dollars collected at each board meeting and convention
2.Clubs can collect birthday dollars at their meetings for PEM and/or donate $100 per year
3.Memorial donations in honor of a member, friend, or family member
4.A bequest in your will    

We have a Memorial Notebook and each time a memorial donation of $25 or more is received a new page is added and a thank you note mailed to the club or individual and an acknowledgement is sent to the family of the deceased.  When making a donation, mail checks made payable to NvFRW (PEM) to the PEM chair, and be sure to include: 

1.Name of deceased person
2.Name and address of the family for notification
3.Name of club or person making the donation

It would be extremely helpful if all club presidents announced the existence of the fund periodically to their members.  A small article in a club newsletter is also recommended.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call or e-mail me.
