An elementary-only independent school located in Atlanta, serving children ages three through Sixth Grade since 1951.

The Trinity Fund

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, staff, and Board of Trustees. Participation from parents, Trustees, and faculty and staff is 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.
Due to its status as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, Trinity must adhere to IRS regulations for year-end giving. If you wish to mail a check, the postmark must be dated by December 31. If you would like to give by credit card, you can make the transaction online any time until midnight on December 31. Your credit card must be charged in the same tax year in which you want to claim the deduction. To transfer securities, please speak with your financial advisor regarding the appropriate timeframe.

Gates Leadership Society

The Gates Leadership Society is central to the success of The Trinity Fund. The Gates Society is named for the landmark front gates, which mark the entrance to Trinity School’s campus and symbolize the joy and wonder of young children engaged in dynamic learning. Honoring those who support Trinity at such a generous level and who, through their leadership gifts, ensure that Trinity students receive the best possible education year to year, The Gates Society recognizes donors who make annual gifts to the School at the $3,000 level and above.

All members of the Gates Society are honored at an annual leadership reception in the fall.
