“Our goal was ambitious, but, as Bennington has taught us, nothing is impossible.”

The members of Bennington’s next graduating class will soon join the College’s worldwide community of innovative alumni, who have been breaking new ground in virtually every field since 1932.

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 2014 Senior Class have chosen to provide support for three areas of the College: Crossett Library, FWT grants, and scholarship support for a member of the Class of 2018. At the same time, a portion of the funds raised will go toward dedicating a memorial bench in honor of the senior’s classmate Emily Kassier.

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.)
