THE VALUE OF AAUW
Membership in a community committed to a shared cause
We are breaking through educational and economic barriers so that all women and children have a fair chance.
Your connection with higher education
Find out how you–or someone in your community–can take advantage of the Educational Foundation’s $3 million in grants and fellowships awarded each year. And learn about women challenging sex discrimination in higher education through AAUW’s Legal Advocacy Fund.
Leadership development and educational opportunities
AAUW offers educational programs that promote gender, race, and class equity and help you develop your professional and personal skills. Programs are offered at conventions, in interactive workshops, in print, and online.
Increased buying power
Because of the increased buying power of a large group, AAUW can provide services designed exclusively for members such as quality insurance plans, including a dental plan and a health plan specifically tailored to meet the needs of women; AAUW’s First USA Platinum Visa card, which features a competitive rate and no annual fee; discounts on AAUW research and merchandise; and more! Savings from these programs will more than equal your yearly dues.
Your voice in Washington from your viewpoint
If equity is at issue, we’re there. As an AAUW member, you will have a strong voice on Capitol Hill on legislation that will affect the lives of women and girls. AAUW’s 100,000 members and our branches in 1,000 communities guarantee that your message will be heard.
Relevant timely news and information
Our award-winning magazine, AAUW Outlook, delivers close-ups of the women behind women’s rights from Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Shirley Chisholm, and Donna Shalala to exceptional women in grassroots America. Plus, AAUW publishes “Get the Facts,” one-page alerts that inform you on how congressional proposals affect YOU… and what you can do to make a difference.
Take advantage of member-only rates on exciting and extensive research reports commissioned by AAUW’s Educational Foundation. The Foundation’s landmark research enables you to make a difference in the lives of women and girls for generations to come.
Updates on public policies that affect your life
Members receive briefings and fact sheets on critical policy issues as well as discounts within AAUW’s monthly policy newsletter, “Action Alert.”
