AAUW Laguna Beach works through the nonprofit 501-c-3 AAUW Laguna Beach Foundation to contribute financially to national, state, and local projects. We support AAUW programs, such as the Legal Advocacy Fund (LAF) that supports the protection of the legal rights of those women who are facing sex discrimination in the workplace. We also support the AAUW Fund that provides fellowships and grants to support women who perform research in a wide range of disciplines and work to improve their schools and communities.
