The Trinity College Fund touches virtually every area of the College every day. Each year, it provides several hundred students with financial aid. It supports faculty and student research opportunities. It helps underwrite the College’s 29 intercollegiate athletic teams and its intramural and club sports programs. It buys library books and supports technology. It turns on the lights and fires the boiler. It enables the College to pursue new educational initiatives.

“When you give to the Trinity Fund, you join thousands of alumni, parents, and friends of the College. This year, we will come together to provide an even stronger Trinity Fund in light of the current economic environment. We have set the Trinity Fund Goal for fiscal year 2012 at $9.25 million in order to guarantee that the dollars needed for additional financial aid and faculty resources, just to name two priorities, are secured."
~Cornie Thornburgh '80
A decade ago, less than five cents of every dollar of Trinity’s budget came from The Trinity Fund. Today, that contribution has risen to eight cents, with a long-term goal to reach ten cents each year. Imagine what a difference several million dollars will make in enhancing the Trinity experience.
