Annual Giving: Alumni Fund

The Alumni Fund: How you can make a difference

When Trinity College School was established in 1865, W.A. Johnson’s vision was to provide a place of learning for young people which would prepare them for success as leaders in society. Today, this vision continues to be fulfilled through the dedication and support of alumni like you.

The Trinity College School Alumni Fund is part of the Annual Giving program, which provides the backbone of support that allows our students to flourish. Evidence of your support can be seen throughout the School in enriched academic, arts, service and athletic programs, enhanced facilities, and hundreds of other improvements. Donations have an immediate impact on the quality and quantity of programs available to TCS Students.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Alumni Fund?

Trinity College School is a non-profit organization and has long benefitted from a strong tradition of philanthropic support from alumni. Annual gifts to the School by alumni are now part of the Alumni Fund and will be used to support endeavours aimed at enhancing our students’ TCS experience.

Where can I direct my gift?

While supporting the School’s highest priority needs is desirable, you can choose to specifically support any program at the School such as the arts, sciences, athletics, scholarships & bursaries, faculty professional development, etc. The possibilities are endless.

Do reunion gifts count as Annual Giving?

Yes! Alumni celebrating a reunion are asked to make a special annual giving gift to the School.

Why are we asked to contribute annually?

Donations received from alumni augment TCS’s operating budget and help make up the difference between what tuition covers and the actual cost of running the School. This is the difference between a great experience and an extraordinary one.

Can my gift really help?

Yes, yes, yes. Every gift is appreciated and the philanthropy & alumni office will inform donors annually as to how donations were used.
