Investment in Education
Over the years, the branch has invested in education by creating an education center for youth and adults, engaged in adult literacy programs at local libraries and providing financial support to school programs and other like organizations.
Brooklyn Branch College Scholarship -
The branch continues to provide financial support to college-bound high school seniors. Over 100 students have benefited from our scholarship program. The scholarship is open to young women and men pursuing a Bachelor's degree at an accredited college or university.
One of our longstanding fundraisers is our theater parties at the Billie Holiday Theater. In June of 2019, we reinstituted our Scholarship Brunch/Luncheon Fundraiser. Combined donations from these two events helped us to provide scholarships to four high school seniors and two recurring scholarships to current college students. However, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we have not been able to host these events, which has significantly impacted the amount of scholarships were are able to give. We still need your help.

Support of HBCUs
One of NAUW's initiatives is to lend support to our Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The Brooklyn Branch will do so by highlighting HBCUs in our programming by supporting HBCU college fairs and other events,
disseminating information about HBCUs and offering financial support.
See a full listing of the 107 HBCUs here .
You can increase our impact by supporting our events or by making a donation via our "Donate" link.
