For 50 years, the AAUW Educational Foundation has been breaking through barriers for women and girls.

In 1958, the Educational Foundation was officially established to administer AAUW's fellowship and grant programs, advancing educational and professional opportunities for women in the United States and around the globe. Thanks to the generous contributions of AAUW members across the nation, the Foundation remains one of the world's largest funding sources for graduate women. Adding to this distinguished legacy, the Foundation also became the source for AAUW's landmark research reports and, more recently, the AAUW Legal Advocacy Fund program.

Please join us in celebrating the Foundation's 50th anniversary, as we mark this important milestone!

Voting "Yes" on the convention is the best thing one can do for Illinois.

There are no intellectually sound arguments for the "No" side.
