About Us

American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a charitable membership organization with a nationwide network of more than 165,000 members and donors whose mission is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.

Danville-Alamo-Walnut Creek Branch members enjoy the opportunity to participate with other professional women in meetings and gatherings focused on:

  • Programs meant to influence public policy as part of AAUW’s powerful voice on behalf of women and girls.
  • Organizing and participating in programs/events to raise money to support local scholarships and Tech Trek camperships.
  • Individual interests such as book clubs, movie groups, hiking, writers group, etc.

The Danville-Alamo-Walnut Creek American Association of University Women Branch was chartered on June 13, 1969. We promote equity for women and girls, lifelong education, and positive societal change.

AAUW is actually two separate not-for-profit corporations: AAUW or the Association and AAUW Funds.

AAUW is a 501(c)(4) not-for-profit advocacy group. Donations are not tax deductible, although memberships may be tax deductible as a business expense.

The AAUW Fund is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and, as such, donations to AAUW Fund are tax deductible. It is the nation’s oldest and one of the largest single sources of non-institutional funding of graduate education for women. In recent years, over $4.5 million has been awarded annually.

AAUW Fund distributes monetary support to several programs through individual and Branch donations: The Legal Advocacy Fund, The Educational Opportunities Fund, The Eleanor Roosevelt Fund, The Public Policy Fund, and The Leadership Program Fund.
