… “Helping Women and Girls Realize Their Potential”
AAUW Doylestown Branch was organized in 1958. Our charter was granted on May 20, 1958 with a membership of sixteen. Branch membership has now grown to 100+ members.
This branch of AAUW has long tradition of attempting to solve educational issues for women and girls. For example, in the early 1970′s it was a group of Doylestown Branch members who founded ‘Aid for Girls’, the organization that later became ‘Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Bucks County’.
FULFILLING OUR MISSION
AAUW Doylestown branch contributes to the community:
- By awarding an Annual scholarship granted to a graduating girl from Central Bucks East, South or West.
- By awarding an Annual Scholarship granted to a young woman graduating from Bucks County Community College and continuing her studies.
- As a supporting member of the Bucks County Women’s Advocacy Coalition
- By conributing to AAUW Funds and the Legal Advocacy Fund
Branch meetings are usually held on the first Wednesday evening of each month at Wesley Enhanced Living (formerly Heritage Towers), Veteran’s Lane, Doylestown. Meetings begin with a half-hour informal social gathering at 7 p.m. and conclude at 9 p.m.

We need supervisors, assistants, heavy lifters, cashiers, attendants for special editions and customer service representatives. Also please ask your husbands, brothers, sons and grandsons to volunteer to serve as "Men at the Door," the sale is busy and there is cash on hand so it's important to have male security figures present.
