How to Support AAUW’s Mission

Every gift to AAUW has an impact — but your dollars go furthest when they support funds critical to our mission. Our strategic plan lays out a bold vision for the future. By giving to the AAUW Greatest Needs Fund or our strategic focus areas, you can make that vision a reality. A donation to the Greatest Needs Fund will help us expand our highly successful, community-based, mission-driven programs, such as Start Smart and Work Smart and the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders, conduct groundbreaking research, and launch innovative initiatives to help women and girls thrive.

Supporting AAUW through the Greatest Needs Fund, or to any of the strategic focus areas, gives the organization tremendous flexibility to respond to unforeseen challenges facing women and girls, cultivate mission-based opportunities for action, and attract new members and supporters.
