Our Mission

American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a national charitable membership organization with a network of more than 170,000 members  whose mission is to advance equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy.

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.
  • Advocacy actions in support of advancing women’s equity.
  • Individual interests such as book clubs, movie groups, hiking, writers group, etc.

The Danville-Alamo-Walnut Creek American Association of University Women Branch (DAW AAUW) was chartered on June 13, 1969. We promote equity for women and girls, lifelong education, and positive societal change.  Over 240 members belong to our local branch.

The national AAUW umbrella organization is a 503(c)(3) charitable organization to which our Danville Alamo Walnut Creek AAUW  branch belongs as a 501(c)(4) not-for-profit affiliate.  Our branch solicits donations for a variety of funds managed by AAUW as well for two funds (Local Scholarship Fund and Tech Trek) managed by the AAUW California Special Projects Fund, (AAUW-CA SPF) a different 501(c)(3) organization.  Donations made directly to the AAUW national organization, or directly to the AAUW-CA SPF funds are tax deductible.
