Reunion Giving

You are here

Your Reunion is a time to reconnect, reflect, and give back. Lead the way and Defy Expectation: Make a gift or multi-year pledge that celebrates the significance of Bryn Mawr in your life and consider the impact you would like to have on today’s students. 

WHAT TO SUPPORT

THE BRYN MAWR FUND – Your unrestricted gift provides immediate and essential funding for priorities that benefit students who currently attend Bryn Mawr. Priorities like financial aid, academic innovation, and new initiatives are just a few examples.

ENDOWMENT FUNDS – Your gift to an endowed fund provides perpetual support for many programs, including scholarships, internships, professorships and faculty research.

MAKE YOUR GIFT COUNT

Each class’s Grand Reunion Gift Total is the cumulative total of all gifts and pledges made to Bryn Mawr College since your last reunion.  This total includes gifts to The Bryn Mawr Fund, outright special gifts for project, capital, and endowment gifts, multi-year pledges, and irrevocable planned gifts.
