Why I Give

Why I Give: For Linda Friedrich '89, it's because Bryn Mawr taught her to make connections across divides.

I was compelled by a classmate to make my first stretch gift to Bryn Mawr, despite being a graduate student at the time, because I understood the importance of supporting the College that shaped who I am as a person. Coming from North Dakota to Bryn Mawr enabled me to be a part of an incredibly diverse group of peers and to engage with people in a new way. Bryn Mawr taught me to listen and make connections across generations, across cultures, across languages, and across divides.

Linda Friedrich '89 served as Chair of The Bryn Mawr Fund for the Alumnae Association Executive Board from 2017-2020.
