The Perfect Gift for College Grads

May 13, 2013

You've gotten her this far ... Now give you grad the gift of membership. (It's free!)It’s graduation time! If you’re wondering what to give the college grad in your life, AAUW has you covered.

As a benefit of your AAUW membership, you can give recent college graduates a free, one-year AAUW membership within two years of graduation — at no cost to you or them. Here are three reasons why this would make a great graduation present for your family member, student, or mentee:

 1. It’s good for your grad.

An AAUW membership can be pricey for a recent graduate — especially since research shows that so many of these students are graduating to a pay gap. But this is the moment in life when graduates need the type of support and networking opportunities that an AAUW membership can afford them. Your grad will have access to career development opportunities, community action projects, and AAUW publications.

2. It’s good for you.  

The Give a Grad a Gift program is completely free, available to you year-round, and there’s no limit to how many memberships you can give. Also, you get the satisfaction of giving your grad all of the benefits of being connected to the AAUW community.

 3. It’s good for AAUW.

AAUW benefits from your gift as much as your graduate does — our current members get the opportunity to learn from recent graduates’ experiences, expertise, and insight. Also, these new members help advance AAUW’s work for education and equity for women and girls.

Give the graduate in your life the gift of AAUW membership today.
