Salem Branch has been recognized for leadership, member outreach, public policy, using technology, local projects, and contributions to the AAUW Funds that are awarded as scholarships, fellowships, and for projects that engage girls in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Founded in 1881, AAUW advances equity for women and girls
through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.

The AAUW Fund, one of the largest source of funds for graduate students in the U.S. and abroad, awarded over $3.7 million in 2014-15.

The Legal Advocacy Fund provides funding and a support system for women seeking judicial redress for sex discrimination. OSU softball coach, Vicki Dugan, was a plaintiff supported by Oregon AAUW in 1994. Lillly Ledbetter, whose name is attached to pay equity reform in Congress, was supported by LAF in her lawsuit against Goodyear Tire and Rubber.
