Book Sale


Our fundraising activities provide us with the means to offer our own Branch scholarships and to make donations to AAUW National, including donations to the Greatest Need, Education & Training and Legal Advocacy Funds, in support of AAUW’s mission: To advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy.  Our main fundraiser is the AAUW Freehold Area (NJ) Branch Book Sale.
