AAUW is a group of university and college professional women who meet monthly in Quincy to promote women’s equality, education and solutions to economic barriers.

The group also has male members. Scholarships are awarded to women attending Quincy University, Culver-Stockton College, John Wood Community College and Blessing-Rieman. Current funds are low, so this fundraiser is important to continuation of the project.
