“I became a better version of myself at Bennington, and for that reason alone I will continue to donate.”

Ways to GiveYour Gift at Work | Anyone Can Be a Philanthropist | Give Now!

Each year, the graduating class makes a gift to the College to commemorate their time at Bennington and their passage into the alumni body. The 2015 Senior Class chose to raise $20,000 to provide support for a quasi-endowed FWT scholarship. Each year, this fund will pay out $2,000 in FWT scholarship grants to support as many students as possible. The fund will be invested, and at the current investment return, it will support students for more than 12 years if they reach their goal of $20,000.

Make your gift today. We welcome contributions of any level from the graduates, their friends and family, and other members of the community. (To make your gift in honor of a senior or a faculty member, please enter the honoree’s name in the comments field of the online giving form.)
