About

A Bantam for Every Bantam

Trinity Giving Day is Wednesday, April 21, 2021. This year, our goal is to secure 2,189 donors – representing a donor for every Trinity student. A generous group of donors have joined the challenge and pledged to give an additional $500,000 if 2,189 alumni, parents, and friends are inspired to make a gift for Giving Day. 

Help us exceed our goal by making your Giving Day gift today and showing that you are #AllinforTrin. All gifts made between on April 14 through April 22 are counted toward our Giving Day goal.

Giving Day 2021 Results

With more than 300 energized fundraising volunteers leading the way, Trinity College’s Giving Day 2021 proved to be a triumph for the Trinity community, raising $1.97 million, which includes a $500,000 challenge gift that a group of generous donors pledged to give if the Giving Day donor goal was achieved.

This year’s goal was 2,189 donors—one for each Trinity student—and that goal was exceeded by 64 as the total donor count reached 2,253.

Why do you give?

This Giving Day, alumnus and volunteer Robert Coykendall ’59 reflects on why he’s supported Trinity for over 60 years.

I give to help ensure that Trinity’s outstanding education will continue and that, through financial aid, it will remain as a beacon of opportunity for all bright students regardless of their financial circumstances.”

Will you join Robert by making your Giving Day and help us reach the goal of a Bantam for every Bantam?
