Branch History and Achievements

Women from the Eastside founded the Lake Washington Branch (LWB) of AAUW in 1940 to further AAUW’s mission.  The branch has now grown to a membership of over 100, with members from all over the area, including Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Issaquah, Mercer Island and Seattle.

The Lake Washington Branch has received numerous awards from both state and national AAUW for our generous giving to scholarship funds, the quality of our newsletter and programs, and the commitment of our members to life-long support of AAUW mission and programs.
