AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research. We are proud to be a part of a nationwide nonpartisan, nonprofit organization with over 150,000 members and supporters across America. Since its founding in 1881, AAUW has examined and researched fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political.

The Atascadero branch supports education through scholarships to women students continuing their college education; raising funds to send middle school girls to Tech Trek camp during the summer and via STEMTrek (science, technology, engineering and math) experiences through the year; and raising funds for the AAUW Funds’ national education and legal advocacy programs. Our members are also active in community action programs, and through our Interest Groups build lasting friendships.

By joining AAUW, we belong to a community that breaks through educational and economic barriers so that all women have a fair chance.
