Dollars For Scholars

Farmers Branch/Carrollton AAUW has consistently affirmed our support for Association’s Educational Foundation, Legal Advocacy Fund and our local scholarships. The “down side” for a branch our size is that fundraisers that bring in thousands of dollars produce more work than our members can provide. However, as John Heywood in 1546 stated, “many hands make light work.”  So, we’d like to try something new.  Borrowing from a successful initiative presented by the Ballwin-Chesterfield, MO AAUW during the 2012 Regional AAUW Conference held in Oklahoma City, we have decided to embrace the Dollars For Scholars concept.

Each attendee will be asked to make a donation to activities designated “Dollars for Scholars.” These donations will go toward national and local scholarships. Any added costs such as dinner, tickets, or transportation may be an additional cost. Reservations will be required for each event. Depending on the activity and the venue, the invitation may include members only, members and guests and/or the public.
