The Bennington experience is transformative, life-changing, and deeply personal. Bennington students can explore ideas and create beyond what they knew existed. A gift to the Bennington Fund helps ensure that today's students are given the opportunity to take their educational experience to unexpected heights.
The Bennington Fund is a critical current-use stream of funding renewed each and every year to benefit the undergraduate experience, including financial aid, campus renewal, Field Work Term, academic programming, and faculty support.
Thank you! We did it!
In October, our Board of Trustee Chair, Nick Stephens ’77, challenged the Bennington community to join him in supporting the College with a gift to the Bennington Fund before December 31, 2019. When 100 donors make a leadership gift of $1,000+ and 1,000 donors make a gift of any size, he will donate $500,000 to Bennington.
In true Bennington style, the community rose to the challenge—1,398 people made gifts to the Bennington Fund during Nick's challenge. Thank you!
