California AAUW members pay dues at three levels: national, state and branch. All dues are typically paid in a single payment.
Branch dues are set by the individual branches. They are not uniform and are in addition to AAUW National and AAUW California Dues. The payment may be collected by the branch, which will forward the national and state portions appropriately.
However, if the branch has opted into the MPP (Membership Payment Program) with AAUW National, its members can pay their own dues in a single convenient payment online on the national website, which then disperses the state and branch portions accordingly.
Branch Finance Officers that do NOT use the MPP program should submit State dues along with a copy of the ADR (Additional Dues Report) at the time that dues are submitted to National.
Please make checks to: AAUW California and send to PO Box 160067 Sacramento, CA 95816-0067. 916-389-0220. Please do not staple the checks.

Dues are typically paid in a single payment, collected by the branch or paid online by the member via the Community Hub.
