Gift Planning

What will be the legacy of your life's work?
What if it could seed an idea, stir imagination, unlock potential?

From the outset, Bennington's purpose has been focused and clear: to enlarge, deepen and transform the lives of its students and, by extension, the world. It starts with an abiding faith in the limitless capacities of the human mind and an equal confidence in the power of a Bennington education to unleash those capacities.

The dedication of a group of forward-looking alumni and friends ensures the vitality of a Bennington education, today and for years to come. Read some of their stories here.

By including Bennington in your will or other long-term financial plans, you and other members of the Silo Society play a special role in nurturing and sustaining the College's highest priorities for future generations of Bennington students.
