Our fundraising activities provide us with the means to carry out, through our own Branch
scholarships and our donations to National AAUW's Educational Foundation and Legal Advocacy Fund, the main goal of AAUW:
helping women and girls to enhance their lives through education.
The sale, which will takes place each June is our major fundraiser and provides the means with which we are able to offer local scholarships (see below) and contribute to the National organization’s educational and Legal Advocacy funds.
To prepare for the sale, members volunteer to sort books at our storage facility each Tuesday morning, from 9:30 a.m. to noon, October through May. This is not an “all work and no play” activity. There is camaraderie and good conversation, followed by one of the activities listed in “Groups and Activities”.
Members also volunteer to work at the book sale.
