When you make your Bennington Fund gift between November 1 and December 31, 2017 you have an incredible opportunity to double or triple the impact of your gift! 

Two anonymous members of the Board of Trustees have made $50,000 challenge commitments encouraging the Bennington community to support our great institution. Since November 1st, 241 donors have joined the 500 for 50 challenge and $25,000 has been matched in leadership support.

             The Leading for Bennington Challenge will match 1:1 all leadership gifts of $1,000 or more made to the                  Bennington Fund.

             The 500 for 50 Challenge encourages Bennington Fund participation at all levels. For every 100 donors                  the challenger will give $10,000. 

The Bennington Fund supports all aspects of Bennington—student scholarships, faculty initiatives, and research grants—your gift has an immediate impact on today’s students.

By making your gift today you will help us earn an additional $100,000 for the Bennington community!
