About Us

AAUW Lake Oswego Branch
Organized 1976

Welcome to an organization of members from Lake Oswego, Oregon City, West Linn, and surrounding communities in Clackamas county, OR. We are dedicated to advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. Study, special interest, and social groups are formed to meet the needs of members and to further AAUW goals. AAUW, founded in 1881, is open to all graduates who hold the Associate or higher degree from a college or university on the AAUW list of qualified institutions. In principle and in practice AAUW values and seeks a diverse membership. There are no barriers to full participation in this organization on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or class. The branch supports AAUW Funds as well as providing scholarships for Oregon Tradeswomen.

The AAUW Funds are a family of national funds which help to fulfill the mission of AAUW.

The Lake Oswego Branch members donate to the AAUW Funds through fundraising efforts and direct contributions. Donations are tax-deductible. Gifts of $25 or more may be designated as tributes or memorials.

The Lake Oswego Branch maintains a web site www.loaauw.org which provides a source of information to its members in addition to a newsletter which informs the membership on a monthly basis.
