$100,000 for Midd.
It’s all or nothing! If 1,800 alumni make gifts of any size, Middlebury financial aid will receive $100,000 from Board of Trustees Chair Marna Whittington P’99 and her husband, Tom P’99.
Financial aid ensures that great students from all kinds of backgrounds can come together at Midd. It’s what makes a Middlebury education possible for so many of our fantastic students.
So get ready to make the Middlebury Match this March. Keep an eye out for our e-mails the week of March 24–31 and make your gift then at go.middlebury.edu/middmatch.
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.

We are focusing on four fundraising priorities: financial aid, faculty support, applying the liberal arts, and Annual Giving. Learn more.
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.
Thank you, Febs!
