Ways to Give to Trinity

The generosity of alumni, parents, corporate and foundation supporters, and friends helps with our short-term needs and our long-term aspirations.

Endowment gifts, on the other hand, ensure the fiscal health of the university for the future. A portion of the endowment’s earnings are spent on current operations and for purposes specified by donors. The rest of the investment yield is returned to principal, where it can grow over the years.

It doesn't take a lot to make a big difference.

From Annual Fund donations to planned gifts, each type of gift shapes our school and the student experience in incredible ways:
