Record Fundraising Month Shows Alumni and Parent Pride
The Trinity community celebrated the arrival of spring with an outpouring of generosity to the college. On April 4, nearly 2,500 alumni, parents, and friends rallied to support Trinity by making gifts on Giving Day. Their gifts, which ranged from $5 to more than $100,000 and spanned nearly five decades of alumni, reflected the remarkable and enduring passion of the Bantam family for the college and its mission.
Over the course of the subsequent weeks, a number of individuals also stepped forward to punctuate the depth of the community’s dedication by making a number of leadership commitments that totaled more than $10 million. Those contributions, again coming from alumni from the 1960s to parents of current students, will support an equally broad range of activities from athletics to financial aid. The largest—a $5 million commitment from an alumnus from the 1980s—will be added to the college’s scholarship endowment.
“Great institutions are, in many ways, a reflection of the communities that support them,” noted President Joanne Berger-Sweeney. “These contributions speak volumes about the greatness of our community and its belief that Trinity is as important to the world today as it has ever been. We are so fortunate and so very grateful.”
