CA AAUW Funds By Charmen Goehring

AAUW members in California over the past months were able to enjoy four online Funds events — previously the Funds Luncheons — each of which highlighted many CA-based recipients of AAUW grants and fellowships. Their topics of study were as diverse as they were interesting! It’s wonderful that dozens of members who might not otherwise have attended a lunch in the past were able to participate on Zoom. It is always inspiring to see how our contributions have provided support for these young women and to hear how they plan to progress in their fields. Each of the presentations and the accompanying slides are available at

Many thanks to those members who consistently send in donations to the AAUW Fund throughout the year via the AAUW website. This is an easy and convenient way to provide funding for our wonderful organization and its programs! Another simple way to contribute is to designate your Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) to the AAUW Fund.

As always, I wish to encourage you to consider honoring your passion for AAUW by joining the Legacy Circle. The Legacy Circle is composed of dedicated AAUW members who have included AAUW in their estates to ensure the organization is healthy and able to help women and girls far into the future. If you have been a member of AAUW for many years, you are passionate about AAUW. Why not take the simple step of joining the Legacy Circle? You can join online at or contact me for a brochure.
