AAUW Educational Foundation
Established in 1881, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a leading voice for equity and education for women and girls. AAUW is comprised of three corporations: The Association, a 501(c)(4) 100,000-member organization with more than 1,300 branches nationwide that lobbies and advocates for education and equity, with a 501(c)(3) Leadership and Training Institute; the AAUW Educational Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public foundation established in 1958 to provide support and advancement for women in higher education and to conduct research on equity in education for women and girls; and the AAUW Legal Advocacy Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization that provides funds and a support system for women seeking judicial redress for sex discrimination in higher education.
AAUW offers to its regular, full-time employees and eligible part-time employees an array of benefits. Core benefits, which AAUW provides at no cost to employees, include life and accidental death and dismemberment (ad&d) insurance, short-term (std) and long-term disability (ltd) insurance, annual and sick leave, paid holidays, a 403(b) retirement plan, tuition assistance and more. Under our Employee Directed Compensation Plan, eligible employees may elect to participate in our medical, dental, supplemental life and ad&d insurance, and 401(k) retirement programs. Health care coverage is effective the first day of the month following date of hire. Eligible employees also may establish dependent care and medical expense accounts on a pre-tax basis. AAUW provides to eligible employees benefit dollars, currently $100, each pay period to offset the costs of their elected benefits. Employees also may purchase Metrocheks and be reimbursed for parking up to established maximums on a pre-tax basis. We also offer participation in United Way, flexible schedules for many of our positions, business casual dress, and a family-friendly and mission-driven work environment.
