Women & Giving Continued
Not sure how to give back in AAUW?
Here's your chance!

Ready for a Challenge to Chart the Course for future women & girls? It’s your chance to give up a drink, snack, clothing, or other purchase per week or per month -- and donate that amount to AAUW's Charting the Course campaign! Charting the Course is a campaign that aims to raise $1 million to support the AAUW mission to empower women in our communities, schools, workplaces, and positions of leadership. Learn more here. This will show all of us at the end of the calendar years of 2015 and 2016 that "a little goes a long way" when we all give small amounts in a concerted effort. Giving to the CTC campaign is easy online via the following link.

Make sure you are showcasing your eNetwork pride by doing either of the following:
***Enter your AAUW member number when donating online or on their check if sending in by snail-mail.
***If you are a member of more than one branch, specify the branch to credit on the online donation form. Three ways to do this: (1) If such a form field is offered, enter it there. (2) If not and there's a comment section on the online donation form, enter it there. (3) If none of these options are available, send an email to notifying them that you want Colorado eNetwork credit for your contribution. Include the transaction ID in the e-receipt that you'll receive from AAUW by email immediately after donating. Then, e-mail us so that we can give you your well-deserved thanks! AND spread the word!

We want to see your sacrifice on social media with
Let’s build a community of support to spread the word and increase our ability to give back.
