The Cape May County Branch of AAUW was founded in 1967 and now has over 70 members, plus 250 e-Student Affiliate Members from the Cape May County communities, including the Wildwoods, Cape May, Cape May Court House, Villas, Rio Grande, Ocean City, Strathmere, Marmora, Sea Isle City, Stone Harbor, Ocean View, Woodbine and Avalon. We provide a large variety of stimulating and entertaining activities to which all members are welcome.
The branch offers opportunities for members to work toward common goals while creating a network of friends:
- Intellectual growth and fellowship through monthly events and interest groups
- Financial aid to support education of women and girls and to promote equity in the workplace through Scholarships, Programs, Mentoring, and Outreach projects.
- Community action on Public Policy issues through group meetings and individual action on AAUW website
Branch events are held monthly. In addition, Branch members are also engaged in a variety of community service projects. Guests are welcome at many of the general branch meetings, and periodically events are open to the public free of charge.
AAUW members are committed to their communities and fellow citizens.
In principle and practice, AAUW values and seeks a diverse membership with no barriers on the basis of gender, race, creed, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or class.
