Tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating a child at Trinity. In fact, 15 percent of every child’s Trinity experience is paid for by philanthropic dollars; only 85 percent is covered by tuition. These numbers underscore the importance of a successful Trinity Fund.
Tax-deductible gifts to The Trinity Fund directly support the teachers and students. Contributions allow Trinity to create and expand learning opportunities through enhancements to the classrooms, upgraded technology, and increased professional development opportunities, to name a few.
Parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty and staff, friends, corporations, foundations, and trustees support The Trinity Fund. Each year, more than 90 percent of parents contribute to The Trinity Fund with 100 percent participation by the faculty and Board of Trustees. Parent, Board, and faculty participation are extremely important as these participation levels demonstrate the vitality of the school community when Foundations and other outside donors are considering Trinity for grants.
Gifts of all levels are recognized in the Report on Philanthropy that is published each fall.
