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.
Please click here for a preview of our plans for next year from our Incoming President, Joanne Quijano.
We are actively recruiting new and returning members to our Branch. If you know someone who would like to join our group of wonderful women, please contact Membership VP Claudia Schwarz.

July Fundraiser: Evening Stroll in Ruth Bancroft Garden
Member Appreciation Garden Party
(August 7, 2021) After conferring among ourselves as the Member Appreciation event organizers, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the event. We are very disappointed to come to this conclusion. But given the renewed county masking directives for indoor events, the continuing rise in COVID positivity rates and the troubling incidence of infections in fully vaccinated people, we feel that it’s just not a good time to hold a large, in-person event.
