Giving to Trinity

Thank you for choosing to support
Trinity College​!

We’ve closed the books on Fiscal Year 2017, and what a year it was! Your support was part of a successful fundraising year for the College: Overall giving exceeded $28.6 million for the year, a 28 percent increase over last year. Your gifts to the Trinity College Fund totaled more than $8 million, with 31 percent of alumni participating, and we exceeded our Giving Day goals in the spring, raising $2.1 million from 2,145 donors and adding 204 new members to the Long Walk Societies. 

This year, many things became possible for Trinity because of your thoughtful support of the College’s students and its mission. We wouldn’t have achieved any of this without our extraordinary donors—whose dedication and passion for Trinity inspire us every day. With our sincere thanks to all of you, I hope you enjoy seeing some of the year’s highlights, which demonstrate in so many ways the good you’re doing for Trinity.

Fields of Excellence

Trinity’s new Fields of Excellence, dedicated April 1, was a $6.2-million project to relocate and build new fields for Trinity’s programs in baseball, softball, and soccer. Athletics have long been an integral part of a Trinity education. Currently, about a third of the student body is involved in varsity sports, while a significant number participate in intramural and/or club sports.

The Crescent Street Center for Arts and Neuroscience 

The Crescent Center for Arts and Neuroscience (CCAN), conceived as a visual symbol of the liberal arts, will open at the start of the fall semester. This project embodies the liberal arts by bridging the fields of neuroscience and the arts and incorporating gathering spaces that foster collaboration among all members of the Trinity community.

Support for Financial Aid 

Support for financial aid is an investment in the future of Trinity College, and this year it helped us recruit the incoming Class of 2021—among the most academically talented and diverse classes in the College’s history. The class includes students from 32 countries and 34 U.S. states or territories, admitted from an applicant pool of 6,085 students. Scholarships create a strong foundation for supporting students in their success at the College and beyond graduation.

Wall of Honor 

Trinity paid tribute to its most generous benefactors at the Celebration of the Wall of Honor​, held on October 14. The names of nine new inductees have been carved alongside Trinity’s most influential benefactors whose philanthropy has had transformational impact since the founding of the College in 1823.


You can help us make 2017-18 a Bantam year. 

A gift made today is put to work throughout the academic year to advance our College's mission and enhance the student experience. Early Bantam gifts also preserve College resources by cutting down on mailings while reducing paper use and postage costs.

Thank you for helping to make an exceptional Trinity education possible for today's students. We welcome you to visit the campus this year to see firsthand the positive impact of your generosity.
