AAUW of Tennessee: Celebrating 90 Years in 2016
AAUW of Tennessee celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2016. That’s right! Since 1926 AAUW of Tennessee has been making Tennessee a better place for women and girls to work and learn. We have done so by:
- Facilitating the mission-based work of our branches across the state,
- Providing networking and leadership opportunities for our members, and
- Serving as a public policy resource for branches, members, and AAUW Members-at-Large in Tennessee.
For your reference, the document at this link describes these services in further detail.
Unfortunately, we may need to cut some of our services due to a lack of funding. Membership dues have always been AAUW Tennessee’s primary source of income. However, since branch membership has declined since 2013, our state dues are insufficient to fund our modest expenses. In fact, for each of the last three years, we have had to dip into our shrinking savings to cover our operational costs. Given these financial constraints and the considerable benefits of our state organization to members and branches, please consider making a gift to AAUW Tennessee this year in celebration of our 90 years strong in Tennessee.
Your gift will help us meet our expenses, including officers’ travel, newsletters, mission-based programming, public policy work, and NCCWSL scholarships.
- Members making a gift of at least $50 will receive special recognition in the AAUW-TN newsletter.
- Members making a gift of at least $90.00 for 90 Years may also designate their gift in honor or in memory of someone and receive special recognition in the AAUW-TN newsletter.
- Members making a gift of at least $300 may also designate their gift in honor or in memory of someone, will be recognized as our Circle of Friends on the AAUW-TN website and will be honored at our State Conference
