The National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) Scholarship Fund provides access for a broader and more diverse audience to be a part of leadership training, inspiration and networking opportunities. Each year, several hundred talented collegiate women benefit from this event. In 2023, the Conference will once again be in-person at the University of Maryland, May 31-June.

There are two options for submitting an individual donation:

OPTION 1: To donate online using your debit or credit card:

  • At the top right side of the home page, click on the large, red DONATE button.

  • Note the specific fund name or number in the memo section of your check.

It’s easy!

Remember that contributions must be submitted within 30 days of receipt and credited to the fund of the donor’s choosing.


  • To submit member and/or branch donations by check, use the Contribution Report Form (CRF): second page of the CRF lists the fund numbers you may need. Other fund numbers are not there because donations to those funds are not needed. If you need help completing this form, please contact the AAUW Funds chair for AAUW PA at
  • Fill out and mail the CRF along with the payment to:

AAUW Development Department
P.O. Box 98045
Washington, DC 20090-8045

  • Make sure all enclosed checks are made out to AAUW Funds and have the intended Fund name and/or number on the memo line.

OPTION 2: If your branch has a PayPal account or a credit card or if an officer wishes to use a personal card, the branch donation can be made through the DONATE button at the top right of nearly any page of the national website or directly here:

  • Follow the easy steps on that first page.
  • Click Donate Now, which will take you to a new page, where you will check the box in the gray banner saying, “I want to make this donation In Honor Of/In Memory Of someone. It will bring up a dropdown window—choose “In Honor Of.” That will open a textbox where you can enter the name of your branch.
  • Fill out the payment information and click SUBMIT.
