Leadership Giving

Philanthropy was critical during the formative years of Bennington College and continues to nurture and sustain its unique character today. You can invest in Bennington’s legacy and have a substantial effect on the life of the College.

Join the Associates Society, which honors all donors to Bennington College who give $1,000 or more per year, for any purpose, at one of the following giving levels:

President’s Circle Associate ($25,000 and higher)
Patron Associate ($10,000–$24,999)
Sponsoring Associate ($5,000–$9,999)
Founding Associate ($2,500–$4,999)
Associate ($1,000–$2,499)

Last year, Associate-level gifts accounted for more than 90% of all dollars raised. These leadership donations provide Bennington with the necessary funding to attract and retain superior faculty, to offer outstanding and deserving students scholarship assistance, to introduce innovative educational programming, and to continue campus renewal efforts.

You can make an Associate-level gift today by visiting our giving page. Learn more about employer matching gifts to see if you may be eligible to double—or even triple—your giving.
