Many thanks to all who made the weekend a great success. Since that time, we've celebrated with alumnae/i and friends at launch events across the country.

The class of 1958 has raised $686,811 toward its goal of $1.7 million in the three years leading up to its 60th reunion in 2018. Thanks in part to a generous challenge match from Ruth "Tulsa" Kaiser Nelson and robust outreach and gatherings organized by the 1958 Gift Committee, 42% of the class has made a three-year, dual pledge and its overall giving participation increased from 57% to 66%. In the first year alone, the Challenge generated $301,524 for The Bryn Mawr Fund and $385,287 for 1958’s Scholarship Fund, increasing their annual scholarship grant fivefold!
