Dear Members of the Trinity Community,
On behalf of Trinity College, I am delighted to welcome you to the 2012 Annual Report of Philanthropy. This report celebrates the generosity of more than 11,000 alumni, parents, faculty, staff, friends, corporations, foundations, and organizations, who made gifts to the College between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012, the final year of the Cornerstone and Legacy Campaigns. To those whose names are listed here, I offer my most sincere and personal gratitude. The impact of your philanthropic investment is evident throughout our campus, and will continue to resonate at Trinity for many years to come.
This report is divided into three sections, each housed on its own web page. The complete lists of individual donors to the College, organized by class year and other characteristics can be found on the page All Donors by Affiliation. The Giving Societies page lists those supporters who give at the highest levels. Finally, I invite you to read a special message from our Chairman of the Board, Paul E. Raether '63, P'93, '96, '01, outlining some of the many the highlights and milestones in philanthropy of this past year and throughout the Cornerstone and Legacy Campaigns.
From Convocation to Commencement, Homecoming to Reunion, philanthropy bolsters everything we do here. Illustrative of the impact you have had on the College, its students, and faculty, each Web page of this report features a gallery of images highlighting events and achievements of the past year. We have also provided links at the top of the page to "Trinity for Life," a short film celebrating the many ways in which our students and faculty benefit from the success of the Cornerstone Campaign. I hope that you will take the time to scroll through these images and watch the video, in addition to reading the names of those whose generosity has made the advancement of the College possible. Thank you for your unwavering support of Trinity.
Yours very truly,
James F. Jones, Jr.
