The 2013 ‘Named Gift Honoree’ for the AAUW Battle Creek Branch is 12 year member, Jill Robins. In honor of the many hours of service Jill has given to the organization, $1300.00 will be donated to two National AAUW funds: 1) the Educational Opportunities Fund, which provides funding for women to continue their education at the graduate and post graduate levels; and 2) the Eleanor Roosevelt Fund which supports AAUW research to provide accurate data and analysis regarding issues important to women and girls.
AAUW branches across the country support these national fellowship funds. This past year, AAUW provided more than $3.7 million for women scholars to pursue research, prepare for the tenure process, or implement community projects for girls and women. These efforts ensure that women continue to succeed in a broad and diverse range of academic and professional fields.
Jill Robins joined the AAUW Battle Creek Branch in 2001 and took office as the Finance Chair in 2006. Jill is a woman always willing to lend her expertise and support toward branch efforts with ever a smile on her face.
