Thank you to all who participated in the fall Bennington Fund challenges! With support from over 1,200 generous donors, our community not only met the initial 500 for 50 and Leading for Bennington challenges, but inspired a second wave of funding—securing $200,000 in matching gifts for the College.

The Bennington Fund supports all aspects of our campus:

  • Student scholarships: 93% of undergraduate students receive financial aid
  • Best-in-class faculty: recruiting and retaining top talent
  • Field Work Term: opening doors for new opportunities
  • Campus developments: to improve the living and learning experience

The loyal support of alumni, friends and families who give to the Bennington Fund each year is crucial to our ability to fulfill the promise of progressive education. Your gift, no matter the size, will make an impact each and every day at Bennington.

Thank you for making a difference.
