The proud history of our national organization
AAUW has more than 165,000 members and supporters in more than 1,000 branches across the United States, with this mission statement –AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research. AAUW members belong to a community that breaks through educational and economic barriers so that all women have a fair chance. We have a long and proud history.
And what we have done in our Venice Branch
Our local Venice branch was organized in 1975 with 60 charter members. We have supported all national programs, as well as local efforts for women and girls. We raised money to endow a career development grant in the name of Frances T. Bourne, one of our members, for which the Jacaranda Library was named. She worked tirelessly to get that library built for south county residents. We have staffed, along with the Sarasota Branch, Academic Olympics in Sarasota County for many years. We have given scholarships for many women whose education was interrupted and were returning to complete their degrees. Our Home Tour, our biggest fundraiser has raised thousands of dollars for this cause. We have organized a STEM workshop for 5th grade girls and we are working with the Jacaranda Library on another STEM project. We have more than 240 members and we are the largest branch in Florida.
