Trinity’s endowment enables great opportunities for faculty and students. Endowed funds are designated for specific purposes such as financial assistance, teaching chairs, professional development, academic programs, athletic programs and facilities. The School will work with donors to match their philanthropic interests to a wide range of the Trinity's top priorities.
Donors make a gift to Trinity with the provision that the principal remains intact. Similar to many other institutions, Trinity's Board policy dictates that the School spends in each year's budget an amount equal to no more than 5% of a twelve-quarter rolling average of the endowment's value.
Donors may pledge to make a contribution to the Endowment over a period of several years and payments can be scheduled to meet your needs. Typically, they are completed within a five-year period. Multi-year pledges offer significant tax advantages.
