Leaving a Legacy
Empowering women has been AAUW’s mission from the beginning—and that beginning was in 1881. For more than 130 years, those who have supported AAUW have fulfilled the goals and aspirations of Marion Talbot, Ellen Richards and our other visionary founders as well as the inspirational and insightful women who have led us since. Day to day, year to year, century to century, AAUW’s members are making a difference.
An important aspect of the work we do at AAUW is looking at our accomplishments over the years and celebrating our history with an eye towards the future. Our members give tirelessly of their time and resources to inspire change.
In addition to immediate gifts, over the years AAUW has been fortunate to receive legacies of all sizes from our members. On the following pages you will find some ideas for giving that you may be aware of—and some you may not. Many of these giving options provide benefits to you and your heirs in the form of tax savings and income in your retirement years.
To learn more, we encourage you to explore these gift opportunities. We are happy to assist you in any way we can as you consider if one of these options is right for you.
