Which areas can my associates gift support?

Trinity Fund

The Trinity Fund relies on Leadership level giving to support scholarships, help attract and retain renowned faculty, and expand the student experience.

Restricted Gifts

Giving to a restricted fund allows donors to restrict their gifts to a particular use. Trinity also allows donors to direct their gifts to currently endowed funds (if applicable). If a fund is endowed, your gift will be added to the principal of the fund. The interest that is generated will be used to support Trinity. This structure of giving allows the fund to remain in perpetuity.

Give to Multiple Designations

Trinity allows donors to make multiple gifts to one or more areas. When giving online, choose “give to an area of my choice.” You can repeat the process as many times as you wish.

If you would like to support a fund that is not listed, select “Other fund” and add your request in the special instruction box at the bottom of the gift form.

Named Scholarships

A gift designated for an annual award scholarship makes an immediate impact on the lives of individual students. These scholarships are named and awarded for the specific period of time and purpose you designate.
