CRU 100

Enhancing wine education programming for AWS members

CRU 100 is a cadre of AWS benefactors advancing the AWS mission of promoting wine appreciation through education by developing relevant, quality wine education resources that directly benefit and empower AWS chapters and members across the country.

The AWS aspires to develop a CRU membership of 100 donors who believe strongly in our wine education mission and are willing to contribute $500 each. Additional proceeds derive from the annual Presidential Reception held at the AWS National Conference. For more information contact us at

Programming Funded by CRU 100

Chapters (and individuals) can use these resources to run a tasting with little or no additional research. Choose your wines and go!

Join CRU 100 and help support improved wine discovery opportunities for your chapter and members across the US. To say thank you, new CRU 100 members receive one free, non-transferable ticket to attend the next presidential reception. AWS is a 501c3 non-profit, so the contribution is tax deductible.

The AWS is proud to have earned the Gold Seal of Transparency from GuideStar by Candid, the nation’s leading source of information on nonprofit organizations. With this designation, the AWS joins fewer than 5 percent of the nation’s 1.8 million nonprofits who have committed themselves to the highest standards of disclosure and accountability.
