Impact: Today and Tomorrow

Once you know what you want to give, decide when you would like to make your gift to see how your impact might expand over time.

 

Give Now

The simplest way to give is through Trinity’s online giving portal, or through cash or check. These direct funds allow the University to see student support through immediately.

But did you know you can also give in many more creative ways? From stocks and securities to real estate and personal property, your donation is a reflection of your philanthropic personality.

Give Over Time

A pledge is a promise: to nurture, to bolster, to sustain. A recurring gift or multi-year pledge provides ongoing support with cumulative impact.

Pledges can be made through our online giving system by selecting one of two options:

  1. Make a recurring gift with a specific number of payments.
  2. Become a sustaining donor through set payments in a specified frequency.

Pledge Your Support

 

Named Giving

Gifts can be restricted by a donor to scholarships, endowed faculty positions, and more. Establish an endowed fund through a minimum gift commitment of $100,000.

The Trinity University endowment has grown over time due to alumni and donor gifts, careful stewardship, and sensible use of yearly returns. Endowed, restricted gifts are usually pledged over a five-year period.

Our Advancement team is available to answer questions, provide guidance, and share opportunities for you to leave your legacy.

 

Plan Your Impact

Did you know that a planned gift can protect your assets, provide for your family, and guarantee you income for life?

A planned gift—a gift through wills, estates, and other assets—allows you to establish your own Trinity legacy.

Personalize Your Giving

Through your company's matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of your contribution. Find out if your company has a matching gift policy by contacting Kris Howland, director for planned giving.

Gifts made in memory or in honor of a family member, teacher, student or friend are generous and thoughtful ways to remember a person’s life and accomplishments. A gift of any kind can be designated as an honorary or memorial gift. Contact Kris Howland, director for planned giving, with questions or for instructions and assistance.

Gifting appreciated stocks, exchange traded funds, bonds and mutual funds can be an easy and economical way to give to Trinity and in many cases may offer a tax advantage. We always recommend that you consult with your tax advisor in order to learn more about the advantages of gifting stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Contact Kris Howland, director for planned giving, with questions or for instructions and assistance.

Your retirement-plan benefits are very likely a significant portion of your net worth. And because of special tax considerations, they could make an excellent choice for funding a charitable gift. Contact Kris Howland, director for planned giving, with questions or for instructions and assistance.

A gift of personal property includes equipment, inventory, books, works of art, or other tangible property. Gifts-in-kind are used to benefit the University, department, or center as designated by the donor. Contact Kris Howland, director for planned giving, with questions or for instructions and assistance.

Real estate gifts provide important benefits to you and your family. You can use real estate to make an outright gift, establish a retained life estate or obtain a charitable income tax deduction and avoid capital gains taxes. The minimum value of a real estate gift is $25,000. Contact Kris Howland, director for planned giving, with questions or for instructions and assistance.

For many donors, tangible personal property, such as art, antiques or collectibles, represents some of their most valuable assets with which to make charitable gifts. To discuss this type of gift, as well as IRS rules for gifts of tangible personal property, contact Kris Howland, director for planned giving, with questions or for instructions and assistance.

Faculty or Staff Member

As a Tiger employee, one of the most powerful statements you can make on behalf of the University is to invest financially in its mission. When employees give back, it sends a strong message to external supporters.

Faculty and Staff Giving

Trinity Student

More than 95% of Trinity students receive some form of scholarship or financial aid—which means there’s a good chance you do, too! A gift of any size can help a future Trinity Tiger enjoy the same resources and create the same lifelong memories that make every student proud to wear maroon.
