The Taylor Society

You are here

Your participation in The Taylor Society continues a vital Bryn Mawr tradition of giving to the next generations of outstanding young women through a bequest, trust, gift annuity, or other future gift.

Bequests have been important to Bryn Mawr from its very beginning. In fact, Dr. Joseph Wright Taylor’s bequest built Bryn Mawr in 1885. The Taylor Society honors Dr. Taylor and his legacy to Bryn Mawr and the world.
