Fundraising Policy 501
AAUW Fundraising Policy 501 (previously 402) is designed to assist AAUW state organizations, branches, and other AAUW-affiliated entities in raising funds to support AAUW’s mission. Fundraising procedures, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations, and state laws change over time. Fundraising Policy 501 and its related guidelines and FAQs will help AAUW and all AAUW-affiliated entities stay current and preserve their nonprofit status.
AAUW Fundraising Policy 501 was approved by the AAUW Board of Directors and will take effect July 1, 2014. Written by the AAUW Fundraising Committee with consultation from AAUW staff and legal counsel, the policy explains what AAUW and the IRS expect of AAUW members when fundraising in AAUW’s name.
