Philanthropy has played an important role at Bennington since the very beginning. Legacy giving plays a vital role in its future.
Members of the Silo Society help ensure that Bennington College not only stands, but thrives—today and for years to come. By including Bennington in their wills, trusts, or naming the College as a beneficiary to an insurance policy or retirement plan, alumni, parents, and friends nurture and sustain the College's unique character for future generations of Bennington students. Read some of their stories here.
Through the Silo Society, the College recognizes and expresses its gratitude to those alumnae/i, parents, and friends who have expressed their loyalty, confidence, and belief in a Bennington education by making a legacy gift and supporting Bennington's future.
If you are interested in learning more about making a legacy gift to Bennington, please contact us.

If you've already made a planned gift, please contact the College, or if your prefer, complete this document and return it via fax or mail so we may have the opportunity to thank you and recognize you as a member of the Silo Society.
