Great things can start small.
Small decisions, like taking a moment out of our busy lives for philanthropy, or small acts, like making a gift that advances the causes we’re passionate about.
As part of Trinity University’s 2023 1869 Challenge, our community of supporters strung these small successes together, again and again, until we built something truly impressive: a record-setting day of giving that is directly providing life-changing experiences and opportunities for the Tigers following in our footsteps.
One by one, alum by alum, friend by friend, family by family, the Trinity community united to meet the goal of 3,000 donors over 1,869 minutes. And gift by gift, act of kindness by act of kindness, our supporters swelled into a powerful force in motion, raising $1,208,066 from 3,593 donors.
To our entire community of support, Trinity says THANK YOU!
You’re invested in building up a Trinity that can continue to pair the intimate, personalized environment we all love with the opportunities of a larger school. And your support hits home on a personal level: giving to your alma mater strengthens the value of alumni degrees!
On the ground level, this support helped Trinity students meet almost every one of its matching challenges, which helped your generosity count for even more. From critical funds and scholarships to student orgs, athletics, Greek Life and more hands-on opportunities, your gifts are already opening doors of opportunity across campus.
