Medford AAUW


We will honor and celebrate our local scholarship recipients at the annual luncheon on Saturday, May 20th, in the Rogue Room of Skyline Plaza at Rogue Valley Manor. The meal will be served at 12PM and the committee will be there to greet you starting at 11:30AM.

Write your check for $18 to Medford AAUW  when you make your reservation.  Send it to Mary Wright Gillespie, 2127 Quail Point Circle, Medford, OR 97504.

Reservations are due by May 13. In the past, members  (referred to by us as angels) have made an extra donation to help defray the cost of the family members who come with the scholarship winners.  This event is also a wonderful time to bring a guest who would enjoy learning about AAUW.


Our 9th Annual Garden Tour will take place on Saturday, June 10 from 10 am to 4 pm.  This year’s tour, sponsored by AAUW Medford, has been dubbed the “West Side Story,” because all six of the gardens on the tour will be on the west side of I-5.  We have lovely gardens, all jam-packed with ideas for you to use.  Plus a winery is conveniently located for your visit during this year’s tour,  To learn more about about the tour, go to the Garden Tour 2017  page. Maps to the gardens are now available. 



Since the 1930s, the Medford, Oregon branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) has served our community, advancing advocacy, education and equity for women. Our Branch, together with other community organizations, has helped to establish and further some of the most esteemed institutions and cultural events in Jackson County. We offer fellowship, networking, leadership training and lifelong friends. Our members enjoy opportunities to meet and have fun with others of like interests from antiques to books to international cuisine and much more through our interest groups. From working to improve the lives of thousands to helping one homeless teen, this is what we do.
