The Bennington College Next Pioneers are alumni from the classes of the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s dedicated to helping preserve the educational excellence and integrity of the College. We have claimed a stake in the College's future by making Bennington a priority in our charitable giving.
As a group, the Next Pioneers are dedicated to providing new students with the Bennington education we enjoyed not so long ago, and to getting our peers more deeply involved in the life of the College today. The Next Pioneers receive special updates from the College, participate in on- and off-campus events, and occasionally host alumni gatherings.
