The volunteer organizations that make Palouse great!
AAUW, founded in 1881, supports equality for women and girls through education, philanthropy, advocacy, and research.
Our Palouse-Garfield Branch focuses on education in our community. We raise funds to send local 7th grade girls to a week-long Tech Trek camp at Eastern Washington University, and we make financial awards to local Gar-Pal high school girls who excel in STEM subjects.
Membership in AAUW is open to any graduate holding an associate or equivalent or higher degree from a regionally accredited institution. Present members of our branch are women from Palouse, Garfield, Elberton, and Oakesdale, as well as farms in between.
