An Annual Fund gift supports every aspect of the Middlebury experience, providing opportunities for learning and discovery, as well as the ability for the College to be responsive to emerging opportunities and challenges.

Annual Fund gifts are unrestricted, meaning they can be spent as they come in, making an immediate difference in the lives of students and faculty. They are an important complement to our endowment, which is invested for the long term and provides a stable source of income to fund College programs.

Why Annual Giving Matters

Annual Fund gifts can be spent as they come in and are directed wherever the need is greatest, creating opportunities for learning and discovery, providing scholarships for students who need them, and giving Middlebury the flexibility to take advantage of emerging opportunities and to respond to unanticipated needs and challenges. 

They also provide our president with resources she can use to plan for Middlebury's future and to ensure that the College remains an inclusive and intellectually dynamic community.
