Bennington Fund

Opening Doors

A Bennington education opens the door to opportunities and experiences. Right now, you have an even better reason to give back to today’s Bennington students: the Opening Doors Challenge for the Bennington Fund.

Board member Mary B. Scanlan ’91 believes in Bennington, and knows that you do, too. As a member of the Bennington community, she hopes you will join her in this special giving challenge: for every $10,000 donated to the Bennington Fund, she will match with $10,000 until December 31, 2018 up to $100,000.

With each milestone and opened door, you can discover the many ways donors impact life on campus, from Field Work Term grants to making the campus more accessible, from academic programs to faculty support.

Our campus is the catalyst for great thinking, exploring, and discovery both inside and out of the classroom. A Bennington education extends beyond the physical place and into the world. Your gift is an investment in the impact of this experience.

Please join in with a gift today and have your impact doubled as part of the Opening Doors Challenge. Together, we are opening doors!
