Creating Change

I support Middlebury because of the deep sense of gratitude I have for my Middlebury experience. I know there is more work to be done to ensure all students have the access, support, and experience of home that I did. Change doesn’t happen without community investment and engagement, and I believe we can help build an even better Middlebury together.

Gratitude

I volunteer for Middlebury as a small way of showing my appreciation and gratitude to the faculty, staff, coaches, and friends who had an impact on my life, long after graduation from Middlebury and the Bread Loaf School of English.

Personal Passion

I volunteer and I donate to Middlebury because it is one of my personal passions. The opportunity to serve as a mentor, build relationships across my experiences, and give back to my community has changed my life. I value these opportunities because I want to open doors for the next generation of leaders and help them succeed personally and professionally, just as my mentors and sponsors did for me when I was finding my way!

Paying It Forward

Middlebury helped shape who I am and opened the world to me. The financial aid support, depth of resources afforded to all students, and the lifelong friendships I made are just three reasons I do whatever I can to pay it forward with my Middlebury volunteerism and philanthropy. I stood on the shoulders of generous alumni who came before me, and I want current students to know they can stand on mine.
