Women have been running for president of the United States since 1872 — before women even had the right to vote.

National Giving, Local Impact

There are many ways to honor or memorialize someone special or recognize an important event by investing in women and girls through AAUW.

  • Celebrate Your Milestone: Establish an Honorary or Memorial Fund

Sponsorship is a powerful way to show your support for AAUW national initiatives and see the results at the local level- Sponsor one of the AAUW programs in your community.


Consider Purchasing Directors and Officers Liability

Many AAUW branches and states already have or are considering directors and officers liability insurance, which protects your leaders and organization from loss due to legal claims alleging errors, omissions, negligence, breach of duty, and other “wrongful acts.” If your organization has not yet purchased this protection, we suggest considering it.
