Why Contribute

The Annual Fund helps bridge the gap in the operating budget between tuition revenues and the actual cost of providing an education at Trinity. The school depends upon the tradition of giving to enhance its programs and facilities, thus enriching each student's academic, creative, and ethical development and providing a platform for their unique voice. The funds also supplement teacher resources, expand technology use, and provide competitive compensation packages for the faculty.

List of 3 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: How much of the annual operating budget is derived from philanthropy at Trinity?

    The annual operating budget at Trinity is $6.1 million.  Total giving at Trinity, combining the Annual Fund, Faculty Venture Grants, and Benefit, is $880,000.
  • Q: Can Trinity just raise tuition to cover the total cost of educating students?

    The cost of independent school education can be expensive. Raising tuition to cover the cost of educating students would exclude several families. Therefore, the annual fund benefits the school and families: it allows us to raise tuition at a minimum rate, helps fund academic programs, and is tax-deductible for the donor.
  • Q: Can working parents still volunteer in meaningful ways?

    Another form of diversity at Trinity is in working families' many configurations and how they balance careers with raising children. So we offer a variety of options for volunteering, from services that require short-term commitments to projects that may last several months. As a result, our parents find an opportunity that fits their schedule and interests.
