Program Giving Opportunities
AAUW improves the lives of women and girls in a myriad of ways — and each way needs the support of donors like you. These unique giving opportunities allow you or your branch or state organization to contribute to AAUW in ways that impact specific programs and initiatives in a meaningful way.
You can pay tribute to individuals or celebrate the work of AAUW branches or states while providing critical funding to programs that help women and girls. Because these opportunities can be named, they serve as a special lasting tribute to honor or memorialize someone or recognize an important anniversary or event. Whether you are celebrating the 100th anniversary of your branch or the achievement of an important person or because a specific program speaks to you personally, sponsoring an AAUW program that empowers other women and girls is a powerful way to give.
Personalize Your Giving
Below are just a few examples of the giving opportunities available. These opportunities are available throughout the country, possibly in your area, in a variety of programmatic areas and giving levels.
These opportunities can be tailored to your own philanthropic interests and abilities. Contact Sarah Spencer at 202.785.7794 or by e-mail to discuss how we can create a meaningful sponsorship personalized to fit your passion.
Elect Her–Campus Women Win is a one-day workshop that encourages and trains college women to run for student government and beyond — and it’s the only program of its kind in the country! The trainings connect attendees with local politicians and communications experts and provide attendees the chance to work on their campaign messages and practice asking for votes.
This grant enables Legal Advocacy Fund-supported plaintiffs, their lawyers, and related experts to speak at AAUW state meetings or conventions about sex discrimination issues in the workplace and higher education.
From October to June, National Student Advisory Council (SAC) members serve as AAUW ambassadors and provide AAUW staff with essential, firsthand accounts of student needs. They also work to combat sex discrimination in higher education and the workplace, promote AAUW and its programs on their campuses, and serve as leaders at the annual National Conference for College Women Student Leaders, held each June in College Park, Maryland.
Serving on the SAC provides students with many opportunities to represent the voices and experiences of their peers, develop as leaders, network, and gain valuable résumé-building experience while learning more about one of the largest women’s organizations in the world.
These grants fund AAUW member-led projects that implement a gender equity program or event at a college or university.
The National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL), presented by AAUW and NASPA, provides a transformative experience for attendees. Students discover and enhance leadership skills, build relationships, network for the future, and meet national experts and workplace leaders. Students return home ready to make change on their campuses and in their communities and forge new connections with AAUW and our branches.Donate Now
