Thank-you Image

Thank you to those who supported the 2016-17 Bennington Fund. With your participation, we had a record-breaking year—raising over $4 million in support of the College’s students, faculty, staff, facilities, and programs. Thank you for being part of it!

Gifts to the Bennington Fund support the College's mission of providing a progressive education for our students. Your gifts make scholarship assistance to 81% of our students possible, allow us to recruit and retain a best-in-class faculty (including three new members joining us this fall), and provide us with the ability to make enhancements to the campus, such as a new student health center.

The loyal support of alumni, friends and families who give to the Bennington Fund each year is crucial to Bennington’s ability to continue providing a cutting-edge liberal arts education for future generations. Your donations, no matter the size, make an impact each and every day at Bennington.
