The Trinity Parents Fund
What is the Parents Fund?
Parents of Trinity students and alumni can make a significant impact on the educational experience of their son or daughter by making a gift to the Trinity Parents Fund. Your gift supports the unique Trinity experience—from faculty mentors to service learning projects to studying abroad and everything in between. Every gift makes a difference now for students at Trinity.
What do gifts support?
Gifts of every size make a difference for current Trinity students. Supporting everything from academic scholarships to intramural sports to residential life, every gift matters. In fact, annual support from parents adds up to more than $260,000 in support of the unique Trinity experience.
The Trinity Parents Council
Trinity parents are a vital part of the University community. Members of the Parents Council help strengthen the relationship between parents and the University by demonstrating the importance of giving to Trinity—through both volunteerism and philanthropy. Members of the Parents Council participate in the tradition of parent giving by making an annual Associates-level gift ($1,000 to $25,000) to the Trinity Parents Fund.
