2013-2014 Endowment Report
Letter from the Vice President for College Advancement
Your gifts to Trinity’s endowment support the core educational mission
of the College,
now and into the future. They make an immediate impact on
classroom learning, on
faculty-mentored research, on state-of-the-art
facilities, and on other key aspects of College life. They are, quite simply,
among the most impactful steps you can take on behalf of Trinity.
I am very pleased to report that Trinity’s endowment reached a
significant milestone in the past year by exceeding $500 million for the first
time. The College ended the June 30, 2014, fiscal year with a balance of $543
million. Positive investment performance and new gifts totaling more than $68
million contributed in our endowment growth. Last year’s performance also included a new all-time record set
by our donors for one-day giving, achieved on April 30 during our inaugural
funds not only support our students and faculty today, but they also cultivate significant
opportunities for our future. Through your support and the dedication of our accomplished
faculty and staff, our students will continue to excel across the spectrum: from
academics to athletics, from performing arts to community engagement. Our
strong endowment performance will enable us to educate our students in new and
innovative ways. I invite you to explore these Web pages to view the full list
of endowed funds, as well as information from the Treasurer’s Office on the
overall performance of the endowment for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
I reflect back on last year’s achievements, I am also looking ahead. Your
generosity strengthens the endowment and helps safeguard the College’s future.
It also means that Trinity can continue to provide a transformative education
for generation after generation of scholars. On behaIf of President
Berger-Sweeney, our students, and our faculty, I thank you for your continued
investment in Trinity College.
