Grants Pass Branch ~ May 2017

Celebration Brunch!

Saturday May 20 – 10 a.m. at the Fruitdale Grange

A tasty brunch will be provided at no charge. This is the Branch’s way of saying THANK YOU for being a member of AAUW and for all your help and support this past year.

We will rejoice in our 2016-2017 accomplishments, honor our new incoming State President-elect Georgia Applegate, have election and installation of 2017-2018 Branch Officers, and meet students to whom we offered scholarships.

RSVPs by May 17 are necessary to plan for food. If you didn’t sign up for the brunch at our April meeting, RSVP by contacting Merry Haydon at


Give a Grad A Gift

How Many Recent College Grads Do You Know? Give Them All the Gift of Free AAUW Membership!

Last year, colleges and universities in the United States awarded roughly 1 million associate degrees, 2 million bachelor’s degrees, 800,000 master’s degrees, and 200,000 doctoral degrees. Can you imagine if every one of these graduating students became an AAUW member? We can, and you can help us get there.

As an AAUW member, you can gift one year of free AAUW national membership to as many recent graduates as you like. Here’s how it works:

Identify the recent college or university graduates in your networks.
These recent graduates can be family, friends, neighbors, former students, friends of friends, you name it! You could even gift AAUW memberships to the entire graduating class of your local college or university. Anyone who has graduated within the past two years is eligible to receive one free membership from an AAUW member.

Collect their information.
You’ll need to know the mailing address, phone number, e-mail, and alma mater for each of these future AAUW members.

Fill out our handy form!
Voilà! Welcome, new AAUW members. Hello, the future of AAUW.

Equal Pay

A typical woman working full time, year-round in the United States is paid just 80 cents for every dollar a man is paid, which means this year she had to work until April 4, 2017, to be paid as much as the typical man took home by December 31, 2016. Sound fair to you?
