Never thought of yourself as a philanthropist? Some of these alumni didn’t either. But they all made a decision to support Bennington—in their own way, for their own reasons—and in doing so they became part of a tradition of philanthropy at Bennington that extends back to the College’s founding.
Large or small, your gift to Bennington makes you a philanthropist.
