Make a Gift
Since Trinity’s foundation in 1555, the college has relied on the support of benefactors and we ask you to continue the tradition by making a donation at whatever level is comfortable for you. Gifts can be regular or 'one off', and can be made in response to a mailing or invitation, or at any time you choose. Whenever and however you decide to make a gift, your support is greatly appreciated.
Whether you choose to make a regular donation by Direct-Debit, which will help the college plan ahead or to make an immediate difference with a one-off gift, your support will have an immeasurable impact on the college and the lives of Trinity students.
Thank you for your support.
Leaving a legacy is your opportunity to make a difference to the lives of generations to come and to take your place among the college’s most distinguished benefactors.
Since its foundation in the sixteenth century, the gifts and bequests of generous and far-sighted individuals have been crucial to Trinity’s development. At a time of declining public funding, such help is even more important if we are to maintain the highest standards of teaching and research and provide the facilities in which all students can develop and flourish.
As the focus of our financial priority changes, a bequest can allow money to be channelled to the areas of greatest need. Alternatively, donors may specify a wish to support a particular interest or chosen area.
