2015-2016 Annual Report of Philanthropy

Dear Members of the Trinity Community,

I am pleased to present the 2015-16 Annual Report of Philanthropy, which recognizes the generosity and commitment of alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends who made gifts to Trinity College between July 1, 2015, and June 30, 2016.

Your gift has a far-reaching impact on the College.  Through your support, our students gain invaluable experiences in our classrooms, laboratories, and studios; in the city of Hartford; and around the world.  Guided by our faculty members, students conduct internationally recognized research.  They produce and perform original theater performances, and earn accolades for their athletic prowess as well as academic achievements.  Experiences such as these define the margin of excellence that distinguishes a Trinity education and would not be possible without your generosity.

I invite you to review the names of your fellow donors ― more than 8,000 individuals and more than 300 organizations ― who contributed to Trinity this past fiscal year.  Together, we are providing a dynamic place where our students can pursue their dreams, discover new passions, and achieve their goals.  As a community, we will continue to build an exciting future ’neath the elms.

On behalf of Trinity College, I thank you for your commitment to the success of our beloved institution.
