Membership is open to anyone holding an associate’s (or equivalent), bachelor’s or higher degree from a regionally accredited college or university.  Join Fort AAUW .

We’d love to have you as a member of our branch!  AAUW-Fort Atkinson is a dedicated group of over 55 members.  We have much to offer you – timely & thought-provoking programs, opportunities to help with our annual book sale, and a chance to make a difference in the lives of women and girls. For example, our Outreach Committee provides assistance and support for women and girls at risk in our area. Click here to see a video of our branch members in action through the years.

Other standing committees focus on:

  • Educational Equity
  • Diversity
  • Public Policy
  • Scholarships
  • Special Events
  • The annual Used Book Sale
  • AAUW Funds
  • Membership

Opportunities also await when you participate in one or more of our interest groups. You’ll have the chance to meet and make new friends who share your interests!

Current Special Interest groups are:  

  • ¡Adelante! Book Group
  • Backpack Project (providing provisioned backpacks to area schools)
  • Mystery Book Group
  • The Nicaragua Project
  • TechSavvy

Other groups form as interest arises within the branch.

We consider AAUW a guilt-free organization – participate as fully as your schedule and interest allow. Attend lots of events or just what you can. Whatever your level of involvement, your membership supports and furthers AAUW’s mission to advance equity for women and girls.

In joining our branch you become not only a member of our local AAUW organization, but also a member of AAUW-Wisconsin and the national AAUW organization.

Yearly dues for AAUW-Fort Atkinson are $88 for the 2021-2022 year ($63 national dues, $13 state dues, and $13 branch dues) which runs from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022. New members can join at any point during the year.

Tax Deductibility: Because AAUW is a 501(c)(3) charitable membership organization, most of your national dues are tax deductible on your personal federal tax return.
