In 2005 Grants Pass Branch established the Grants Pass University Women Charitable Fund (GPUWCF). This nonprofit 501(c)(3) status provides people the opportunity to make tax deductible donations to support our mission related activities: the Rogue Community College endowment fund and scholarships, national AAUW funds, and events such as the Frog O’Faire and Girls Rock!
We are registered with the Amazon Smile Program. Go to the Amazon Smile website and choose Grants Pass University Women Charitable Fund as your charitable organization. Then each time you shop, go to Amazon Smile’s website to order your items. Amazon will donate 0.5% to GPUWCF.
