Annual Giving

You Can Make a Difference

When Trinity College School was established in 1865, W.A. Johnson’s aim was to provide a place of learning for young people which would prepare them for success as leaders in society. Today, this goal continues to be fulfilled through our present vision that Trinity College School will be internationally regarded for excellence in developing leaders of character, purpose and vision due to the strength of its people, programme and place.

Gifts to the Trinity College School Parents Fund play an important role in almost every aspect of your child’s living and learning experience at the School. Your annual giving donations have an immediate impact during the current school year.
