This year has been a watershed year for the LAMDL. We have expanded to support over 600 students from 30 different LA public high schools, all while significantly increasing the rigor of our programming. This success has generated new demand for debate, but we cannot do it alone. Making a donation to the LAMDL will help us reach our goal of competitive debate more accessible to students across LAUSD.

Donations to the Los Angeles Metropolitan Debate League are tax-deductible and always welcome. The donation you make today will directly fund student debate activities. Our EIN: 27-3388731

We accept both credit card and checks as well as online contributions. 

Checks should be made payable to “Los Angeles Metropolitan Debate Commission” and mailed care of Henry Weissmann to 350 South Grand Ave, 50th Floor, Los Angeles CA, 90071. Please be sure to write in the note line that the donation is for the Los Angeles Metropolitan Debate League. Please include a return address so that we can mail you a receipt for your deduction.

In-Kind Donations

Research is an essential skill learned and developed in policy debate. For current debaters, much of that research is done online. For some students however, having a laptop at a tournament is a burdening cost. In addition to monetary contributions, you can help alleviate this burden through in-kind donations. If you have older laptops that you or your office are retiring, consider donating them to LAMDL so that they may find new life and purpose at the hands of our talented debaters. For any questions or other considerations, please do not hesitate to contact our Executive Director, Michael Cirelli
