Collective Impact

Anassa Kata! You donated $301,884,913 to the Defy Expectation Campaign, smashing through our minimum goal of $250 million.

The collective support of donors and the successful impact of the 10-year Defy Expectation Campaign that ended in 2021 have enabled the College to:

  • establish over 100 new endowed scholarships;
  • continue to meet 100% financial aid for undergraduate students’ demonstrated need; and
  • work to decrease the need for loans to attend Bryn Mawr, including no longer using loans to meet need for students with a total family income of less than $110,000, as well as increasing aid for all need-eligible students.

With your help, Bryn Mawr will continue to transform lives, societies, and the world. Learn more about the impact you have had by watching the videos below.
