What We Do



Northwest Discoveries

Excursions that are sometimes off the beaten track. In addition to known Portland attractions such as the Art Museum and the Rose Garden, we have explored more eclectic interests, such as going behind the scenes with a judge or learning how to decorate a cake. Usually, a docent or instructor brings our subject to life; then we talk about our experiences over lunch.



Local Scholarship

The Tigard Area Branch raises funds and annually grants a scholarship to a student at Portland Community College.  Applicants must be a female student at PCC and apply through the PCC Foundation.

To make a tax-deductible donation to this scholarship fund, make your check out to “PCC Foundation” and write “Tigard Area AAUW #?” in the memo line. Mail to Linda Talluto, 15596 SW Wintergreen St., Tigard, OR 97223.

Support for AAUW Mission 

Every gift to AAUW has an impact — but your dollars go furthest when they support funds critical to our mission. AAUW’s strategic plan lays out a bold vision for the future. By giving to the AAUW Greatest Needs Fund or our strategic focus areas, you can make that vision a reality. A donation to the Greatest Needs Fund will help us expand our highly successful, community-based, mission-driven programs, such as Start Smart and Work Smart and the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders, conduct groundbreaking research, and launch innovative initiatives to help women and girls thrive.
