It is a tradition for Trinity parents and families to honor their graduating seniors by participating in the Senior Parents Committee (SPC), which provides the opportunity to make a lasting and meaningful difference at the college by supporting future Bantams.

Trinity guides and prepares our students to take the next step in becoming the innovative, inspiring leaders of tomorrow. In recognition of their Trinity experience, the 2023 Senior Parents Committee is excited to continue this annual tradition of philanthropy in celebration of their students’ Commencement.

Senior Parents Committee members make example-setting gifts and invite other senior families to support the college. Commencement inspires many families to make a “capstone gift” – a special pledge that commemorates the graduate’s time at Trinity.  Capstone gifts take many forms and can be designated towards a wide variety of priorities: the Parents Fund, contributing to an Endowed Fund, establishing a named Endowed Fund, supporting new spaces or renovations, and more.

While many parents and grandparents will stay engaged with the life of the college long past their student’s graduation, making a capstone gift can solidify your family’s legacy at Trinity.

Make your gift in honor of your student!

Senior Brick Dedication

During Commencement Weekend in May 2023, the college will honor the senior class by installing engraved bricks on the Lower Long Walk bearing the names of each and every graduating senior. The inscribed bricks will unite the class in celebration, and be a symbol of the mark these students have made on Trinity before they go out and make their mark on the world. When they return to campus as alumni, these bricks will serve as a reminder of their many great memories and accomplishments from Trinity.

“It is a distinct honor for us to Chair the 2022 Parents Senior Tribute Gift Campaign for Trinity. As alumni ourselves, we both recognize the impact a Trinity education has far beyond the four years ‘neath the Elms. With our children embarking on the next chapter of their lives, we know you will find that a Trinity education’s return on investment is far reaching. As we approach the 200th year of the college, there is much to be proud of and much to be grateful for. Thank you for helping us celebrate this exceptional Trinity Class of 2022 by joining the Senior Tribute Gift Campaign.”
