Dear Members of the Trinity Community,
Having just completed my first year as president of Trinity College, I am exceptionally pleased to present the 2014-2015 Annual Report of Philanthropy, which recognizes the generosity and dedication of alumni, parents, and friends who made gifts to the College between July 1, 2014, and June 30, 2015.
All of us at Trinity are grateful to the many donors who have graciously provided for the welfare of the College through their personal philanthropy. The support we have witnessed has been heartwarming, and we appreciate the far-reaching impact of this generosity. Whether it has been given as unrestricted annual giving through the Trinity Fund, endowed or capital support, a contribution toward athletic programs, support for scholarships, a planned gift, or some combination thereof, each gift is a testament to the abiding affection and pride that people have for this institution and their commitment to providing a transformative educational experience to students.
I hope that you will take the time to read the names of your fellow donors ― more than 9,600 individuals and more than 300 organizations ― who contributed to Trinity this past fiscal year. Many of the people listed in this report have also given of their time as volunteers, mentors, and resources for our students, faculty, and staff.
Trinity’s exceptional liberal arts education, world-class faculty, and talented students position the College to boldly meet the challenges of the future, preparing Trinity students to learn, to explore, and to realize their dreams in making a difference in the world.
On behalf of the entire Trinity community, and especially our students who directly benefit from your support and generosity, I thank you.
President and Trinity College Professor of Neuroscience
