Welcome to the Danville Alamo Walnut Creek Branch of the American Association of University Women. Advocating for equal rights, gender equity and education for women and girls since 1881, we are tenacious and trailblazing!
We sponsor and fundraise for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education through TechTrek and Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) for local girls and each year our branch awards scholarships to local women to help them complete academic degrees and graduate programs.
Besides sharing a love for community service around women’s equity and education, we enjoy a rich social event calendar as well as a broad selection of interest groups – Books, Movies, Bridge, Gourmet, Writing, Art and Garden, Mah Jongg, Hiking, and Great Decisions. Please explore our website and contact us if you would like to learn more.

We need your generous help to contribute to the success of both AAUW national initiatives and our branch’s signature projects!
In past normal years, we’ve been able to hold fundraising events that provided significant financial support for these initiatives. Unfortunately, more recently it has become difficult to do in-person events given pandemic restrictions, and we continue to face fundraising challenges this year. While we are planning smaller scale fundraising activities in the coming months, they just won’t be sufficient for our funding needs.
Please consider making a donation now to one or more of these key areas:
- The AAUW Greatest Needs Fund
- Our branch’s Local Scholarship program
- Our branch’s Tech Trek program
