A prominent endeavor for our branch is raising funds to provide scholarships to students in their third year or higher of college. For 35 years we sponsored the longest running juried, invitational art show of local area artists.

This year's avenue of fundraising was Purses With A Purpose, a benefit luncheon and live and silent auctions of designer purses held on September 21, 2013. All proceeds from our public fundraising events support our college scholarship program and, new this year, the Tech Trek WA residential science camp for girls entering eighth grade.

Our community activities include:

Developing and maintaining the AAUW Volunteer School Partner program at Utsalady Elementary school for the Stanwood-Camano School District.

Providing scholarships to university students during their third year or higher.

Recognizing Stanwood High School, Arlington High School, and Lakewood High School scholars in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

New project for this year is our participation in the AAUW Tech Trek WA residential science camp for girls entering the eighth grade. This year we will be providing two scholarships, one at each middle school, for girls nominated by their teachers to attend this marvelous camp.

Sponsoring the Candidates and Issues Forum during national and statewide elections.

Helping families during the holidays in partnership with the Community Resource Center and local food banks.
