Campaign to honor Mary Peterson

  • by

A “surprise” part of the AAUW NC 2015 annual meeting was a campaign to honor our outgoing president, Mary Peterson. We did a special fundraising campaign for the Ann Chipley AAUW American Fellowship endowment, choosing that fund since Mary had been a colleague of Ann’s when she lived in Maryland and Ann was on the national AAUW staff.

We are pleased to announce that we surpassed our original $1000 fundraising goal and raised $1755 from individuals and branches as part of this effort. In particular, 13 of our 18 active branches made donations to the campaign:

Asheville
Chapel Hill
Charlotte
Gaston Regional
Greensboro
Hendersonville
Jacksonville Regional
Raleigh/Wake County
Salisbury
Sandhills
Tar Heel
Twin Rivers
Wilmington

Thanks to all!
