Giving to AAUW Funds supports our work at the national level. There are multiple ways to give, but, in line with our Strategic Plan, AAUW Tyler encourages gifts to these specific funds. Having just completed a $100,000 American Fellowship Endowment, the Tyler Branch currently supports the Greatest Needs Fund (9110) as part of our 5-Star Branch goals.
AAUW Greatest Needs Fund (9110)
This unrestricted fund allows AAUW to respond rapidly, in our communications and advocacy, to critical issues affecting women as they emerge…whether it’s a new threat to Title IX, an opportunity to partner with employers, or the dawn of a social justice movement like #MeToo. When donations are not restricted to fellowships or specific projects, we have the dollars we need to pivot as the national dialogue shifts.
The Greatest Needs Fund also fuels our research and advocacy work to pass fair-pay laws and other key equity legislation.
Education and Training Fund (4450)
Addresses the barriers that prevent women from thriving in school and pursuing the careers of their dreams. That means championing equal access to education and ensuring women can learn in environments free from harassment and discrimination.
Leadership Fund (4452)
Supports the efforts to bolster the number of women in top roles across industries by addressing systemic biases and giving women the skills and resources they need to lead.
Economic Security Fund (4449)
Promotes women’s livelihoods through advocacy for fair-pay legislation, researching the pay gap, training women to negotiate for the salaries they deserve, and advising employers on fostering fair cultures.
Gifts to all of these funds are tax deductible.
Please make all checks payable to AAUW Funds. If you prefer to restrict your gift to a specific fund, please indicate the name or number of the fund in the memo section of your check or any accompanying document and mail to AAUW, P.O. Box 98045, Washington, DC 20090-8045.
