Gifts to the Annual Fund support the professor who taught you how to think, the coach who showed you how to lead, the mentor who set you on your professional path. They bring the country and the world together in a community where a kid from Boston and a kid from Bosnia can share their family stories in Chinese. They make possible the friendships strong enough to last for decades.
“A gift to Middlebury is a gift to the future, because Middlebury students go on to accomplish great things. So when I say thanks for your gift to Middlebury, I really mean thanks for helping to make a better world.”
—Bob Bourque '75, P '16
Chair, Annual Fund Executive Committee
Why Alumni Giving Matters
The Annual Fund supports every student, professor, program, and department on campus. It provides the flexibility to respond to changing circumstances and to take advantage of new opportunities. It helps to bridge the gap between the actual cost of educating a student and the comprehensive fee. Every gift truly counts—no matter the size.
Why Give to Middlebury?
Your gift to Middlebury helps teach exceptional young people how to understand the world and contribute to it. With its focus on the environment and international education, the College prepares its students to tackle the world's most pressing challenges and to recognize and develop new opportunities.
Your Middlebury education was made possible because generations of alumni and friends shared with us through the Annual Fund. Your gifts help students aspire to make the world a better place, knowing that those who came before them are behind them all the way.
