Bantam student-athletes strive for excellence in competition and in the classroom. At Trinity College, there is a community behind them that makes their pursuit possible.

The student-athlete experience on women’s teams has been shaped by the decades of Bantams who came before them. Our trailblazing alumnae and coaches have paved the way for today’s opportunities, and the commitment of our loyal and caring donors elevate the quality of our women’s programs for current and future generations.

In recognition of the 50th Anniversary of Title IX, Trinity College launched “The Power of Bantam Women” fundraising campaign focused on supporting the future of women’s athletics at Trinity. To kickstart the campaign, every gift made in June 2022 to Trinity Athletics was matched with a $100 gift to Trinity Women’s Athletics. A record-breaking number of donors responded to the challenge and helped unlock over $20,000 in additional support for our Bantam Women!

The Power of Bantam Women fundraising initiative will continue as an important priority for the campaign. We ask you to continue to strengthen our women’s programs by making a gift to Trinity Athletics.


“I spent my entire career encouraging the growth of our women’s sports program, and I want each student-athlete to believe that competing as a Bantam was one of the best decisions she made at Trinity. A gift to support Women’s Athletics at Trinity will help to provide an inspirational platform for future generations of female student-athletes to experience what we all love about sports: the competition, the friendship, and the memories.”

The goal of the Power of Bantam Women Initiative is to raise funds for our 15 women’s varsity sports and to enhance the overall student-athlete experience for Bantam student-athletes participating in women’s programs. Join our efforts and pave the way for the next generation of difference-makers and record-breakers.
