As a Trinity parent and family member, you are one of our most valuable ambassadors.
Parent and family volunteers are extremely important to furthering the mission of the college, acting as ambassadors and helping to cultivate positive relationships with fellow parents.
Join the Trinity College Parents Leadership Council
Membership on the Parents Council provides an opportunity to participate in the growth and development of Trinity while fostering stronger ties to your student’s experience and the Trinity community. Parents Leadership Council members support the college’s strategic initiatives and enhance the experience for all Trinity students.
Serve as a Career Panelist or Speaker, or Host Students in Your Workplace
Trinity parents and families play a critical role in the Center for Student Success and Career Development. Share your workplace experience, post a job on our job board, sponsor a summer internship, or meet with a group of students during a career exploration trek.
Host or Attend a Trinity Welcome Reception
We welcome Trinity families to host informal receptions in cities across the country and the world to welcome first-year families to Trinity and foster connections between parents and families of current students.
Trinity families play a central role in the college’s success, supporting initiatives that transform the educational experience for all Trinity students. These acts of generosity greatly enhance student life, financial aid, curriculum, facilities, and more. Parents and families can support the Trinity College Parents Fund, which provides unrestricted support for the college’s operating budget and reinforces every part of the Trinity experience. In addition, gifts may be designated to restricted purposes such as financial aid, career development, and athletic teams.
Each year, a number of parents are invited to join this parent leadership group. Parent Directors meet twice yearly on campus and are kept informed of recent college developments. They also assist the college in outreach and serve as hosts at various events. For more information, visit The Parent Directors of Trinity College.
Parents Fund Committee
Members of the Parents Fund Committee (PFC) serve as the primary and most personal contact between Trinity College and their fellow parents. PFC members help to raise unrestricted gifts for the Parents Fund, increase parent participation, and connect parents to the college.
If you are interested in getting involved, contact Kerry Smith, Director of Family Giving, at 860-297-4076.
