Welcome to the Gaithersburg, MD Branch of AAUW!

Your Contribution is Requested for Local-College Scholarships.

The book sale has been postponed until it is safe, and students still have college tuition but constrained income.

Although we will not have funds from the book sale this spring, the branch hopes to provide a reduced number of scholarships to women students at Montgomery County colleges and universities. Our treasurer, Edie Allison is accepting donations to send to the colleges and universities in June. 

Donations of children’s books are being accepted, but we do not have the capacity to accept and store other books.

Meetings are cancelled until further notice.

Everyone is welcome to all our meetings
