November 2023 Branch Meeting


GIVING TUESDAY Nov. 28 Noon to 3pm

Home of Jodi Gouwens, Linck Estates, 924 Kellum, Unit #304,

Off Cowles & 10th, behind Arctic Bowl 907-474-9144

Last year this event was a successful and enjoyable fund-raiser for our scholarship fund. So come enjoy some snacks along with tea or coffee. Your guests and family members are welcome. Fill out an AAUW program survey for our branch.

Because the scholarship announcement will be published in January, our Board needs to know what funds are available by the end of December. Currently our Fairbanks AAUW branch has some 2024 scholarship funds from member donations.

This event will be both a mini garage sale and mini bake sale. Jodi is continuing to downsize resulting in a variety of items available along with a limited amount of baking this year. Cash, check, or credit card will all be accepted. Watch for an email closer to the date on what will be available.

Do you have some garage sale books or bake sale homemade cookies you can add? Perhaps a snack to share? These can be dropped off at Jodi’s condo before the sale if you wish.

If you can’t join us on Nov. 28, you can donate by contacting Gael Murakami at 907-479-0804 or You can also mail Gael a check made out to AAUW — PO Box 83406, Fbks, AK 99708

FYI – GIVING TUESDAY was created in 2012 to counteract the spending of Black Friday and Cyber Monday with philanthropic giving to charities and non-profits in need of support. It has spread to become a national and international campaign.
