Endowment Report 2013-2014

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 Giving Day.

Endowment 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.

As 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.
