Endowment Report 2015-2016

​Letter from the Vice President for College Advancement

Thank you for your continued generosity in supporting Trinity College’s endowment. Your investment allows the College to provide our students with the resources they need to reach their full potential. Whether they pursue studies in art, literature, music, or science, students gain the knowledge and experience needed to succeed in an ever-changing global landscape. Through classroom instruction, hands-on learning in laboratories and studios, internship opportunities, and extracurricular activities, Trinity students become leaders and important contributors to our society.

I am pleased to report that Trinity’s endowment remains well above $500 million. The College ended the fiscal year on June 30, 2016, with an endowment balance of $524 million, which was marked by new contributions for endowed student scholarships and programs, faculty support, and capital projects, as well as an incremental increase in overall alumni participation.

Support of the endowment helps to ensure that generations of Trinity students will enjoy an exceptional liberal arts education. I invite you 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 2015-16 fiscal year.

Trinity College’s successes this year would not be possible without your unwavering support and commitment. On behalf of President Joanne Berger-Sweeney, our students, and our faculty and staff, I thank you for your dedication to helping our students become fully prepared to embark on their roads to success.


John P. Fracasso
