The Slade Society Challenge
We have now reached the 400 memberships needed to unlock the Board’s second $50,000 distribution of their $200,000 Slade Society Challenge to benefit Bryn Mawr. In conjunction with the Defy Expectation Campaign, the Trustees put forth an inspiring challenge to secure 800 memberships in the Slade Society before May 31.
A Circle of Leaders
The Caroline McCormick Slade Society recognizes the exceptional commitment of alumnae/i, families, and friends who make leadership gifts to Bryn Mawr. The Slade Society is comprised of a small group of members - 10% of donors - who make a big impact in the lives of students, contributing almost 75% of unrestricted dollars each year. Since the inception of The Slade Society in 2000, members have helped grow Bryn Mawr Fund support by 36% and continue to provide extraordinary opportunities for today's students and future generations.
The Slade Society is named in honor of one of Bryn Mawr's first fundraising volunteers. In 1919, Caroline Slade raised close to $2.5 million to support faculty salaries - a remarkable sum at the time. Today, the generosity of Slade Society members supports the College's excellence and innovation by funding financial aid, competitive faculty salaries, technological resources, and maintaining our historic campus.
Membership in The Slade Society begins with a gift of $2,500 or more. For Graduates Of the Last Decade (GOLD alumnae), Slade membership equals the number of years since graduation multiplied by $100. Graduating Seniors can join Slade with a gift of $100 or more to their senior gift.
