AAUW is a wonderful organization full of inspiring, amazing women, who pay it forward. Last year, they sponsored 4 bright young students from Seattle Girls' School for Tech Trek - a STEM camp. Seattle Girls' School staff is so grateful to AAUW for making that experience possible for those girls. Thank you AAUW for your advocacy and work on behalf of women and girls!

Having dealt with pay discrimination, AAUW has given me a voice to advocate for others who have not had a voice or were frightened to do so for fear of losing their job. AAUW is the most professional group of women who support and advocate for positive change for women and girls. Their stands are based on research and education.

AAUW supports education and equity for all girls and women. I grew up with AAUW as both my mother and aunt were active members in AAUW Branches. AAUW has allowed me to interact with many other educated women throughout several states I have worked in.

I have sought out AAUW Branchs as I have moved to different states for career opportunites. Finding college educated women in a new location has helped me with networking and finding all kinds of resources. I also grew up being aware of AAUW & its mission of education & advocacy for girls & women through my mother & aunt who were AAUW members for many years.

AAUW Funds is a way to be a HIP benefactor. It is High Impact Giving that maximizes my gift for the highest impact for women and girls. I am proud to be a member of the Mooneen Lecce Giving Circle that has helped fund the latest AAUW research: "Graduating to a Pay Gap". As a member of the giving circle I can move beyond being an individual benefactor and be an active partner with this phenomenal organization. My individual giving is exponentially greater through this group and enables me to break down barriers for all women and girls. Research and philanthropy go hand in hand, but AAUW Funds also touch women scholars, legal advocacy, and help increase participation by women and girls in STEM (science, technology, engineering and Math). This is only the tip of the AAUW funding iceberg!

AAUW is a nationwide community of educated women who work to break down barriers for all women and girls. Being the first member of my family to receive a college degree, I know firsthand how important an education can be. Working with an incredibly talented staff of researchers, public policy advocates, and development strategists, AAUW is continuing a legacy of 130 years of committment to education, advocacy, research and philanthropy. One girl and woman at a time, in one local community at a time, AAUW continues to open doors and keep equity in the forefront.

AAUW supports education and equity for all women and girls. In 1980, I was one of those young women when I received my AAUW Rachel Carson Endowed Fellowship that saved me a year of graduate school because I could concentrate on my research rather than work for my tuition funding. EVERY year, AAUW supports women's education around the world, giving them voices with which to stand up for themselves and financial support to achieve their goals. AAUW also advocates for the rights of women and girls in a male-dominated society here in the United States. Today reproductive rights are being taken away from women by male-dominated legislatures around the country. AAUW members stand up for those rights and work for women to have the right to make decisions about their own bodies.

AAUW a first-class nonprofit. I joined after receiving in 1981 an American Fellowship for my graduate work in marine biology. That fellowship saved me a year by freeing my time up to focus on my doctorate. I have been a member since then and served in most levels of leadership at the branch and state levels. I am currently Public Policy Chair for AAUW of Maine. I have also served nationally on grant review panels for AAUW as well as two terms on the Educational Foundation Board. AAUW has improved steadily in my 30 years of involvement, does more, is more effective and efficient with its finances, and conducts its complex programs with skill. It is now a national leader in advocacy for education and equity for women and girls, effectively acting as a change agent for diverse issues (e.g., pay equity, sexual harassment and bullying in schools, getting out the vote, ensuring a healthy environment for raising children. AAUW supports education by providing hundreds of grants to women around the world and for graduate work, educational research, career development, and fields where women are underrepresented.

For more than 130 years, AAUW has put women and children first. AAUW works for equity for all - but especially for women and girls. Currently AAUW is leading the charge for Pay Equity. With the passage of the LIly Ledbetter Act with AAUW's help, the push is now on to raise the standard of living for women so women get more than 77 cents for every dollar made by a man. Raising that level of equity will impact ALL families nationwide - and what a simple solution to making things better for the American family. AAUW and its 150,000 members deserve our support of their mission - now and always!

For more than 130 years, AAUW has fought for the rights of women and girls. Whether developing the kindergarten system, marching for equal and reproductive rights, working to protect injustices in higher education and many more causes, AAUW has always been at the forefront of actions that make a difference.

Whether providing fellowships for advanced education or for research grants, AAUW promotes equality in education for all. Members raise more than $3 million annually to support the endowments and grants programs. The Legal Advocacy Fund of AAUW provides case-support for women who are involved in litigation in higher education programs nationwide.

Almost 100,000 members work not only at the national level but at the local level on projects and programs that benefit the lives of women, girls and families.

This is an outstanding organization that has a history of "putting its money where the need is" when it comes to issues affecting women and girls.

The Great!

I have personally heard from women supported by AAUW with fellowships, grants or case support. When one hears these women's stories and learns about how they have used the support of AAUW to change lives in their own communities, one knows that AAUW is truly effective.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage more people to donate to support the causes that reach women, girls and families.

AAUW exists to provide a support network and advocacy group for women affiliated with the historically patricarchal world of higher education, providing women, like myself, with a network of colleagues who share experiences and support each other. The publications and listserv sponsored by AAUW are refreshing reminders not only of how far women have come in this field, but that there is more work to be done.

The AAUW has been the most amazing organization over the past year of my life and continues to amaze me. My involvement and awareness with the AAUW grew in March 2012 when the AAUW used Legal Advocacy Funds to sponsor a press conference for military rape survivors taking action at the National Press Club. Ms. Linda Hallman, CEO of the AAUW gave an incredibly though-provoking speech and encouraged survivors of military rape to continue to advocate and spark true societal and institutional reform within the Department of Defense and United States. Within minutes of the press conference ending, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, BBC, Reuters and the Associated Press all covered extensive stories on-topic and involved, "The Invisible War" multi-award winning documentary. Media inquiries continue to this day as a result of what the AAUW funded, yet also had the foresight to do: advocate for equality and action. I had the most sincere pleasure of attending the Florida State Convention of the AAUW and giving a speech representing how truly touched and grateful I was for their actions. The AAUW raises funds and campaigns for other women whom they may not ever meet. They raise funds, increase awareness and ask for equality on the premise and principle that it is the right thing to do and therefore a call to action is necessary. I have since met my local branch and joined the organization- I firmly believe that all eligible women should. Yesterday, the AAUW announced something even more bold, yet powerful. They will start an "Invisible War Campaign" at the branch level. The influence that this campaign will have over local communities, veterans and society will be monumental. The AAUW has now helped raise the bar even higher for men and women alike regarding ending the epidemic of injustice, sexual trauma and apathy within the military. Now is certainly the time to join this all-encompassing organization. I cannot say enough how truly grateful I am for this life-changing organization.

The AAUW has helped me overcome a very difficult situation in my life. They have assisted me as an individual, with integrity and respect, in a time I needed support. I could not imagine having to go through the unfair battles I faced as an individual without having the broad shoulders of the AAUW LAF team. I hold the up most respect for the AAUW because of their mission and actions. They have proven to me that they are a mission driven orginization, not just a name. I am a CEO of a longstanding non profit myself and feel I fully understand the roles and responsibilities required in leading a non profit agency. The AAUW is clearly a leader of all in the areas of respect, responsibility, integrity, honesty and caring. I could not imagine better service in any mission driven orginization. The world is clearly a better place because of the AAUW's good works!
