Membership & Donations

The purpose of the Association for Women in Mathematics is

Why belong to AWM?

Membership dues keep this Association running. Your membership helps to cover our modest administrative expenses and the costs of our web site and newsletter production. Some of our ongoing programs are partially funded from membership fees, while federal grants and corporate and private contributions provide the bulk of that funding.

Our non-profit tax exempt status has been temporarily revoked, and donations made after September 12, 2016 are not currently tax deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. Our request to the IRS for retroactive reinstatement is pending and we expect our status to be retroactively reinstated.  Once this has occurred, all donations to the AWM will once again be deductible as charitable contributions, even if they were made before the reinstatement occurs. We apologize for this inconvenience and will let you know as soon our tax exempt status is reinstated.
