We did it!
The Middlebury Match challenge generated more gifts for the College in the last week of March than in any other week ever.
More than 3,400 alumni responded to two challenges—one issued by Chair of the Board Marna Whittington P’99 and her husband Tom P’99, and another by Trustee Susie Scher ’86—securing an additional $150,000 of funding for financial aid.
Add that to the $700,000 of alumni gifts, and that’s $850,000 we can put to work right away, helping students from all backgrounds make the most of their opportunities, inside and outside the classroom.
What a difference alumni gifts can make! Thank you.

The New Squash Center is a Winning Addition
The new squash center provides an outlet for athletes of all levels to play, compete, and connect. Part of Middlebury College’s first construction project fully funded by donors, the new squash facility has raised awareness of the sport, helped to bring the local community and the college together, and improved the athleticism and morale of Middlebury’s varsity team.

Featured Priority: Financial Aid
The Potential for Change
At the Bread Loaf School of English (BLSE) around 70% of students receive some kind of financial aid. This crucial support will enable many of them to become exemplary teachers who will inspire their own students and revitalize their educational communities.
In this brief video, David Wandera MA English ’08, MLitt ’13 explains how a Betty and David Jones Teacher Fellowship and other College financial assistance changed his life by allowing him to study at BLSE. Emily Bartels, director of the Bread Loaf School of English, also discusses why financial aid is one of the school's top fundraising priorities.
