Development Office reports fundraising numbers

The Development Office reports that the College’s fundraising efforts for the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2003, resulted in record gifts from alumni, parents, and friends. Total giving for the year exceeded $36 million, particularly noteworthy in light of the unsettled economy. “Once again, Trinity alumni, parents, and friends have risen to the occasion,” says Janet Bailey Faude, vice president for development and alumni programs. “Their confidence in the College speaks volumes. It affirms that, as an institution, we are continuing to move in the right direction.”

Highlights for the fundraising year include the following:

  • The Annual Fund had another banner year, as giving topped the $5 million mark for the first time in the College’s 180-year history.
     
  • For the seventh straight year, more than 50 percent of alumni made gifts to the College-a remarkable feat, matched by only a handful of colleges and universities in the entire country.
     
  • The Class of 1963 presented a 40th Reunion class gift totaling more than $503,000. This gift broke the 40th Reunion record of $501,000 set by the Class of 1961 and represents the largest Reunion class gift of any class at Trinity College.
