Support Our Mission

Bennington College was built by forward-thinking people who dared to dream big. The College’s founders and earliest champions envisioned a new kind of college, imagined a new model of scholarship and teaching, and created a new way of transforming students’ lives.

How Your Gift Helps

Planned gifts can be as diverse and varied as the people who make them. All gifts, regardless of the vehicle, can be directed to whatever area of Bennington College you are most passionate about, be it scholarships, faculty, facilities, programming, or something else.

Benefits of Giving

A gift plan can provide you substantial tax benefits, especially when you give stock or real estate. Depending on your situation, you may save income taxes, capital gains taxes, probate expenses, and estate taxes.
