Development Office reports
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.
