AAUW Mission Statement
AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.
Each holiday season, people around the world take action to give back to their communities and build a better world. The best way to do that is to empower women — something AAUW has been doing since 1881. Don’t miss your chance to support women and girls during this season of giving.
Here’s just a sample of what your contribution can do:
- $20 mails 50 student workbooks to one Elect Her training site, helping us teach college women how to run for office — and win!
- $50 provides resources for AAUW student organizations to use in the fight for women’s rights on campus.
- $100 helps print and deliver get-out-the-vote materials for an AAUW voter registration table on a college campus.
