Membership

AAUW of New Jersey!

We are women living in New Jersey who have joined this great association (AAUW) because we believe in and support AAUW’s mission in advancing equity for women and girls through research, education, advocacy and philanthropy.  AAUW-NJ hosts and participates in many interesting activities and events such as public policy, state issues and legislation affecting women and girls, the annual teentech conference, state annual meetings and much more.

AAUW-NJ is a State organization that supports our local Branches and our Garden State (Virtual) Branch. Joining a New Jersey Branch, or the Garden State (Virtual) Branch, allows Branch Members to participate in Inter-Branch activities and causes, sponsored by AAUW-NJ (including our Annual Meeting, and Fall Focus Retreats).

AAUW Members often choose to belong to one or more local branches. Participate in a local NJ branch to further national and community goals and to capitalize on the networking opportunities.  See below for all the benefits of membership, then find a branch near you.

Individuals who do not wish to join a local branch can join the “Garden State Branch,” when joining AAUW.

Membership Dues

For Regular AAUW Members that join a New Jersey Branch, AAUW membership dues includes AAUW National dues ($49) + AAUW State of New Jersey organization dues ($10) + Branch dues (dollar amount varies by Branch), and are for fiscal year beginning July 1 and ending June 30. Branch dues for the Garden State (Virtual) Branch is $0.

Graduate students enrolled in a qualified educational institution can join AAUW ($18.81) for their first year of membership + State ($10) + Branch membership (dollar amount varies by Branch).  Please click here to join, in order to receive the discounted rate for the first year of membership. Undergraduate students are encouraged to join a local branch as a student affiliate.  For some branches, you can join as online on the AAUW National website. For other Branches, it is necessary to contact the branch to obtain a membership application.

Undergraduate Students currently enrolled in a two- or four-year qualified educational institution can join AAUW as a student affiliate ($17) + State ($5) +Branch membership (dollar amount varies by Branch).  Undergraduate students are encouraged to join a local branch as a student affiliate.  For some branches, you can join as a Student Affiliate on the AAUW National website.

For the Garden State (Virtual) Branch and for some Branches, dues can be paid on the AAUW National website.  Some Branches choose to collect their own dues. See their branch web sites, or contact their Branch President, for more information on Branch membership and payment of AAUW, State, and Branch dues.

Because AAUW (National) is a 501(c)(3) charitable membership organization, most of your national dues are tax deductible on your personal federal income tax return.

AAUW national individual membership dues are $49. Of this $46 is tax deductible as a charitable contribution, and $3 is not because it supports the AAUW Action Fund’s section 501©(4) Lobby Corps and get-out-the-vote activities.  For Graduate Students, $2 (of the first year membership dues of $18.81) ) is not tax deductible.  For Undergraduate Student Affiliates, $1 (of the $18 dues) is not tax deductible.  State dues are not tax deductible.  Contact your local branch regarding tax deductibility of dues.

By joining a local Branch, or the Garden State Branch, you can also be part of an enthusiastic and motivated state group that supports and shares your thoughts on state and local issues for women and girls.
