Parent Giving and Volunteering

Parent Giving

The Parents Fund—a part of the Trinity College Fund—supports the operating needs of the College. It has traditionally been one of the strongest funds of its kind among liberal arts colleges. Gifts to the Parents Fund support every program at the College and benefit all students immediately.

In addtion to Parents Fund support, gifts may be designated to restricted purposes including financial aid, career development, and athletic teams. For more information and additional giving opportunities, visit Giving Priorities.

To make a gift to Trinity, please call the 24-Hour Trinity Gift Line at (800) 771-6184 or visit our online giving page.

Volunteer Opportunities

Parent volunteers are extremely important to futhering the mission of the College, acting as ambassadors and helping to cultivate positive relationships with fellow parents.       

Parent Directors

Each year, a number of parents are invited to join this parent leadership group. Parent Directors meet twice yearly on campus and are kept informed of recent College developments. They also assist the College in outreach and serve as hosts at various events. For more information, visit The Parent Directors of Trinity College.

Parents Fund Committee

Members of the Parents Fund Committee (PFC) serve as the primary and most personal contact between Trinity College and their fellow parents. PFC members help to raise unrestricted gifts for the Parents Fund, increase parent participation, and connect parents to the College. 

If you are interested in getting involved, contact Kerry Smith, Director of Parent Giving, at (860) 297-4076.
