Support Your Team During TAG Week

ONE WEEK - ONE TEAM - ALL BANTAMS

Trinity Athletic Giving (TAG) Week is an athletic team vs team fundraising competition to increase alumni participation and support for ALL Trinity athletic teams. During TAG Week, team alumni will compete to win prizes for their team.

  • Each team alumni group that reaches their donor goal will win $1000 for their team.

    All 24 teams succeeded in reaching, or exceeding, their pre-set team goals

     
  • The men and women’s teams that garner the highest overall giving percentage of their alumni will win an additional $2500 for that team.

    ​W Squash and M&W Cross Country & Track, won this prize with 21% and 16% overall team alumni participation, respectively.

     

  • When the number of alumni donors during TAG Week reaches 900, a $10,000 prize from an anonymous donor will be given to the Athletic Director’s Discretionary Fund for technology upgrades the benefit all teams.

    1013 alumni gifts secured this important upgrade to help all Athletic programs

     

Your support provides team travel and meals, specialized equipment, improved technology, career programming, and more. These resources allow Trinity to offer the best possible athletic experience and remain competitive among our NESCAC rivals and other regional and national opponents. Gifts received this year will support team budgets for academic year 2019-20. 

 Your participation is key to maintaining this important support into the future.
