About Eastern Delaware County Branch
Eastern Delaware County Branch was originally organized in 1933 as the Lansdowne Branch, but changed its name in 1971 in recognition of its geographical growth. One of over 1300 branches of AAUW, it now serves more than 30 communities in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Throughout the years, the branch and its members have been known for many accomplishments within AAUW program areas.
The emphasis of our branch's fundraising is on supporting the AAUW Educational Fund (EF), the world's largest source of funding exclusively for graduate women, and the AAUW Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF), the nation's largest legal fund focused solely on sex discrimination in higher education.
Regular meetings of the Branch are generally held in the Convenant United Methodist Church: Saxer Ave. and Springfield Rd, Springfield (Delaware County), PA 19064, at 7:30 PM on the first Monday of each month, September through May. Specific meeting dates and special events are indicated in our calendar. Members may also become involved in special interest groups.
