Scholarship Fundraising

The LPD AAUW Local Scholarship Foundation is a 501(c)(3). Most fundraising is done within the branch through an annual non-event.  Donation letters for this year’s event have gone out in the mail to all members.  Through our branch member’s generosity, we were able to provide scholarships to two young women!!

Each year we have a non-event fundraiser, giving our members and others the opportunity to donate to a good cause without purchasing a ticket, buying a new outfit or leaving your home. The themed fundraiser letter offers suggested donation amounts based upon activities or interests you might actually want to purchase or bid on if you were attending an actual fundraiser. Anyone can donate. Membership is not required! Donations should be made to AAUW/LPD Local Scholarship Foundation. Contact our fundraising event chair to make your non-member donations.

Thanks to our generous members and others, the current year’s donations will fund scholarships for next spring.  We take donations throughout the year and they are tax-deductible.
