Philanthropy

Education is one of the greatest gifts you can make! It has an impact today, helping our children find their voice and unlocking their potential. It also shapes the future for years to come, as the next generation grows up to become the leaders of tomorrow, empowered to change the world for the better.

Giving Initiatives

Each of our giving initiatives represents a different way you can create possibilities for our school and children, and they work together to create the best experience for our students, now and for years to come.

Annual Fund

Tuition does not cover the full cost of an exceptional Trinity education, and as an independent school, we do not receive financial support from any institutions. The Annual Fund pays for annual expenses like our forward-thinking curriculum, classroom supplies, faculty salaries, facility operations, and much more.

SHINE

We see ourselves as a private school with a public purpose. Our SHINE program serves students from under-resourced communities to minimize summer learning loss, bolster academic achievement, and instill the confidence that kids need to thrive.

SHINE works with students from Title 1 schools, developing the skills and confidence to help them thrive. Under-resourced students are six times more likely to drop out of high school and fewer than one-third will enroll in college.

Special Events

Special events are opportunities to bring our community together. Some are designated as fundraisers, such as our big biennial spring event and others are solely “friend raisers.” All are important and offer a time to celebrate the Trinity family. Our biggest event is Trinity City Limits, held every two years.

Trinity City Limits supports the recruitment and retention of teachers, professional development for staff, financial aid for families, and teacher-requested projects. The event in 2024 raised an incredible $1.64 million!

Endowments

An endowment is the ultimate source of long-term security because it provides perpetual support. Some gifts to endowments are restricted to a specific purpose. Others can be to our general endowment, which supports areas of greatest need.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts are estate planning options that can be highly effective ways to advance the Trinity mission and support future generations of students. Families may even give to their own relatives and loved ones while also helping the school.

The Trinity Promise

Capital campaigns enhance school programs through campus improvements. Our most recent capital campaign, The Trinity Promise, was a multi-year effort that added a new building and expanded our indoor learning spaces by 31%. New spaces include a gym, theater, music classrooms, and dance/yoga studio.
