Branch Fundraisers

Starting in 2020, proceeds from these fundraisers will go to the national AAUW Greatest Needs Fund (9110) that helps expand AAUW’s highly successful, community-based, mission-driven programs, such as Start Smart and Work Smart and the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders, conduct groundbreaking research, and launch innovative initiatives to help women and girls thrive.(Click on the logo above – use your Amazon account – select our branch – start shopping!)

Let’s smile to support AAUW! An AmazonSmile, that is.  With our new 501(c)(3) nonprofit (tax-exempt) status, our branch now qualifies to participate in AmazonSmile fundraiser.

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon.  Every item available for purchase on amazon.com is also available on AmazonSmile at the same price. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice, at no cost to you! 

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

  • Go to smile.amazon.com and login with your existing Amazon account or create a new one using your preferred email address.
  • Once logged in, scroll down and type ‘Aauw Colorado Springs Branch – CO’ in the box to pick your own charitable organization and click ‘search’.
  • Click ‘select’ to choose Aauw Colorado Springs Branch – CO.
  • Check the box acknowledging that you must visit smile.amazon.com each time you shop in order for donations to be sent to AAUW Colorado Springs. Click ‘Start Shopping’. 
  • Remember you must visit smile.amazon.com each time you shop in order for our branch to receive AmazonSmile donations.
