Dear Members of the Trinity College Community,

Thank you to everyone who helped to make the third annual Trinity Giving Day a resounding success. I am pleased to announce that we surpassed our goal of $2.25 million, raising $2,401,209 for the Trinity College Fund. We also exceeded participation goals in both donors and new Long Walk Societies members. I am profoundly grateful to the 2,313 donors who participated.

During the month of April, Bantams worldwide celebrated the exceptional learning and teaching that are taking place at Trinity – inside the classroom, in the city of Hartford, and around the world.

Each gift has a tremendous impact on the College. The loyalty and generosity of our alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends are a testament to their belief in our mission: to help make possible the outstanding liberal arts education that our College has provided for nearly two centuries.

Celebrate with me by visiting to view the results.

On behalf of Trinity College, I want to thank everyone who supported Giving Day.
