AAUW has been empowering women as individuals and as a community since 1881. For more than 140 years, we have worked together as a national grassroots organization to improve the lives of millions of women and their families.

AAUW Mission:

To advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy.

The Half Moon Bay branch covers the broader section of the coastside with members ranging from the south in Pescadero to the north in Montara, east to Woodside with Moss Beach and El Granada represented, too. The branch supports various programs, including scholarships and STEM programs.

The educational enrichment programs are financed with proceeds from several fund-raising initiatives.

Coastside Gives  Campaign is a Success!

⭐️We are a Force!⭐️ Thank You!⭐️

Our fundraising campaign through Mavericks Community Foundation proves AAUW  Half Moon Bay is a Force for Women and Girls. This year our  Branch has raised a remarkable $17,234!  We exceeded our $12,000 goal by 44%. Thank you for all your support on May 4, 2023, in our community, and beyond!

This amazing amount represents our generous Matching Fund which jumpstarted our efforts early on ($4500), cash awards earned for social media posts, and a YouTube video ahead of Gives Day ($750), as well as phenomenal support from members and friends of the Branch, which helped us earn $1500 in prizes. Thank you, All!
