Giving Societies


Located in the Fuller Arch in the heart of the Long Walk, the Wall of Honor celebrates lifetimes of philanthropy.  Etched into the Wall are the names of those alumni, parents, friends, and organizations who have had institution-building impact at the College.


The Long Walk Societies honor leaders in giving whose philanthropy has had the greatest impact during a given year.  The Long Walk Societies members' gifts made up nearly 83 percent of the Trinity College Fund in 2014-2015.

The Elms Society recognizes those individuals who have included Trinity in their estate plans or supported Trinity through a special gift vehicle.  Their commitment strengthens the College's financial foundations and ensures future generations of  students have access to outstanding educational opportunities at Trinity. 
The Chair's Circle recognizes leadership gifts to the Trinity Fund of
$10,000 or more.  The Trinity Fund benefitted from over $9 million in gifts in 2014-2015.
The Loyal Bantam Club recognizes donors who have given to Trinity for at
least five years in a row at any level of giving.  Consecutive giving creates greater
stability for Trinity
and enables the College to plan for an even brighter future.
