On Commencement day, May 19, after 541 seniors received their diplomas, five Senior Class Gift Committee members made their own presentation to President James F. Jones, Jr., on behalf of the graduating class. Their gift—totaling $10,160—will provide assistance to support the financial aid need of a member of the Class of 2017, who will be designated the Class of 2013 Scholar.

Gifts from the Class of 2013 were included in the $8,718,629 total raised by the Trinity College Fund in fiscal year 2012-2013 , which closed on June 30. Eight percent of Trinity’s budget comes from annual gifts to the Trinity Fund.
