Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a professional fundraiser for more than 28 years, I have always been impressed with the high calibre of care and commitment AAUW takes in allocating their charitable monies. Branch members from across the country work to raise funds for fellowships, research, community projects, equity, advocacy and leadership - - all focused on helping women break through barriers. Branch members also serve on the allocation teams that review hundreds of applications to select the most appropriate recipients. It is a process all can be proud of and as a 39 year member of AAUW, I certainly am! It is philanthropy that puts our mission in action!

Review for AAUW, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I wasn't always a leader. I wanted to be, but it took awhile to develop my skills - - and AAUW helped me do that. Now I have had the pleasure of serving AAUW in two states and five different branches in a variety of leadership roles. I never worry about having friends - - no matter where I am, AAUW is there. AAUW offers women the opportunities needed in today's world to stay current, stay connected and stay involved in making important changes for the good of all. As a national organization, it is a prominent voice in legislative affairs impacting women and I can add my voice through AAUW's Two-Minute Activist! Easy and fast! I've worked with AAUW members in their twenty's and those in thier nineties! ALL were a part of AAUW because they want to make a difference for women and girls. I'm proud to be one of them!

From those early beginnings, I was able to transfer skills into the wonderful world of fundraising and have been a profissional fundraiser for more than 26 years now. I owe AAUW a lot!
