AAUW-WA established the AAUW-WA Special Projects Fund (SPF) in 2010 to receive tax-deductible corporate and individual donations for AAUW-approved projects within the state of Washington that further education and equity for all women and girls. The SPF is not intended to compete with the existing AAUW Funds. SPF is a tax-exempt corporation as provided by the Internal Revenue Service Code 501(c)(3) and the Washington Secretary of State.
The SPF may be used only for projects that promote education and equity for all women and girls and that support the AAUW mission. Specifically excluded are those projects that seek to influence legislation, support candidates for office, or are of benefit solely to AAUW members or individuals.
Previous projects were NCCWSL [sending students to National Conference for College Women Student Leaders – click for info…] and Expanding Your Horizons program. The project currently active in SPF is Tech Trek.
