AAUW Action Fund Mission
The AAUW Action Fund advances equity for women and girls through member activism and voter mobilization.
Since 1881, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) has been the nation’s leading voice promoting education and equity for women and girls.
The AAUW Action Fund was established July 1, 2009, following a strategic restructuring of AAUW, the AAUW Educational Foundation, and the AAUW Leadership and Training Institute. The AAUW Action Fund supports AAUW’s continuing goal of breaking through barriers for women and girls, and it does so through member activism and voter mobilization. Both organizations have a nationwide network of more than 100,000 members, 1,000 branches, and 600 college/university institution partners.
A briefing on the AAUW website provides detailed information about the structure of AAUW, the AAUW Action Fund, AAUW branches, and members.
