Individual Donors

AAUW Champions

The AAUW Champions for Women and Girls program recognizes generous individual donors who have made a significant financial commitment to advancing equity for women and girls. The Champions program honors donors who annually give single or cumulative gifts of $5,000 or above. Multiyear commitments are encouraged to support deeper investments in our programs.

AAUW is so grateful to the individuals listed below, and everyone else who supports our mission, for making a difference in the lives of women and girls. The Champions below are current as of May 2022.
