Giving Their All

The AAUW Champions for Women and Girls program recognizes generous individuals who have made a significant financial commitment to advancing equity for women and girls.

The AAUW Champions for Women and Girls program honors donors who annually give single or cumulative gifts of $5,000 or more to AAUW. Our Champions help AAUW reach our goal of pay equity for all, support women and girls in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields, and continue the fight for Title IX protections.

AAUW is so grateful to these remarkable donors, and everyone else who supports our mission, for making a difference in the lives of women and girls. The Champions listed here are current as of April 2023.
