The purpose of the Delaware Branch AAUW was to further, at the local, state and national levels, AAUW’s mission to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research. The Delaware Branch was founded in 1966.

The branch reached its 50th anniversary, and on June 4, 2016 voted to dissolve.  The local membership has aged and not brought in younger members.  AAUW is still strong at the national level and state levels.

Those who wish to join a local branch may join the Worthington, OH branch.  If interested in the 2016-2017 year Worthington Branch AAUW membership, contact Jane Wilson, Treasurer at jwilso78@columbus.rr.com.
