The Greater Richmond Branch’s major fundraiser is a Wine Tasting Benefit held in November each year.

Part of these proceeds have historically gone to two AAUW Funds, the Educational Opportunities Fund and the Legal Advocacy Fund.

In addition, Greater Richmond AAUW is able offer one or more local undergraduate scholarships.
