Book Sale

2022 Book Sale Postponed

Fundraising for Scholarships to Continue

The AAUW McLean Area branch will regrettably not hold a used book sale this year. We hope to restart this major fundraiser in the fall of 2024. We are making every effort to locate space for collecting, sorting and storing some 50,000 books we receive each year.

Fundraising for scholarships to be awarded in 2023 will continue this year through several smaller efforts. A fundraising committee is being formed to consider and implement several fundraising activities. We will announce these as they are scheduled.

We hope you will continue your financial support through these efforts so we may continue funding scholarships to young women.

Successful Fundraiser Held in 2021

McLean AAUW regrets that we had to postpone our annual book sale in 2021 due to ongoing safety concerns resulting from COVID 19.  In the meantime we held a different fundraiser in 2021.

Shown are winners of the fundraiser memorabilia: top row, from left to right, Phyllis Yoshida, Maureen Stratford, and Fran Pearce. Bottom row, from left to right, Becky and Jim Kilbourne, Casey Scott Laxton, and Marion Kettering. Center, autographed Nationals memorabilia signed by Max Scherzer.

The fundraiser included an outreach directly to members and a GoFundMe fundraiser to the public. Seven National’s baseball memorabilia items were signed by Max Scherzer and were included in the GoFundMe fundraiser. Donors to our GoFundMe fundraiser had the opportunity to own one of these items through a randomized blind drawing which took place on August 24th.

The grand total of our fundraising efforts was $21,908.17. The McLean Area Branch of the American Association of University Women is most grateful to Erica and Max Scherzer for their generous contribution of memorabilia for our fundraiser, as well as everyone who generously donated to promote our mission to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.
