The Association for Women in Mathematics is a registered 501(c)3 organization, with Tax ID Number 23-735-4959. The AWM office is located at 11240 Waples Mill Road, Suite 200, Fairfax, VA 22030.

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.

Please let us know if you have included the Association for Women in Mathematics as a beneficiary through your will. We would love to able to say “thank you” during your lifetime. We understand that you may change your plans at any time, so the notification is non-binding. We will keep your information strictly confidential unless you give us permission to publicly acknowledge your generosity.
