Long Walk Restoration & Renovation

We Invite You to Leave Your Mark on the Long Walk – the academic, historic and architectural heart and soul of our campus…

In 1874, a young student named William G. Mather defaced the woodwork in the chapel on Trinity’s first campus, which was at the site of the current state Capitol building in Hartford. Years after leaving his “mark,” William G. Mather, Class of 1877, presented Trinity with the funds to construct the magnificent building that is today the Trinity College Chapel. (This may have been one of the more unusual examples of recognizing a benefactor’s philanthropy with a carving in stone or wood!)

We invite donors to the Restoration & Renovation of Trinity’s historic Long Walk to be recognized for their leadership and generosity, or to celebrate and honor a family member, classmate, friend, or faculty member.  This is an unusual and historic opportunity to have a space on the Long Walk named in honor or in memory of someone special for whom Trinity holds deep meaning.

The total cost of this project is $32.9 million. Of this amount, $7.5 million or more will need to come from philanthropic support of alumni, parents, and friends.

Long Walk Restoration & Renovation: Fundraising Progress to Date

Of the $7.5 million needed to be raised from philanthropic support, $5 million has been raised to date.
