Before a single rock was quarried, Middlebury's founders laid the College's true cornerstone. They committed themselves to a rigorous, transformative liberal arts education and to a level of personal generosity that would make that education available to young people of great potential.
Over the past two centuries, alumni, parents, and friends of the College have given generously to keep Middlebury at the forefront of the liberal arts. Thanks to their commitment, the College offers a global educational experience in which exceptional students from varying backgrounds learn from one another as well as from outstanding faculty mentors.
Your gift to the College has an immeasurable impact on the daily lives of our students and the community of which we are a part. It helps teach exceptional young people how to understand the world and contribute to it. And through our alumni, your gift contributes to positive change around the country and the world.
