Trinity College has been awarded a grant of £50,000 from the Wolfson Foundation to support the College’s new Levine Building.
The Levine Building is an ambitious development that will transform the learning, teaching and study spaces in the College. It will extend the academic resources for the Trinity community and make them more accessible to the wider public, including potential applicants. The grant represents an important contribution to the project’s funding.
Trinity College President, Dame Hilary Boulding, says: ‘I am delighted that the Wolfson Foundation has chosen to make an award to this significant project and, on behalf of everyone at Trinity College, I extend my sincerest thanks to the Trustees for their support.
‘The support of the Foundation has already been instrumental in preserving some of Trinity’s historic buildings, and so we are especially grateful now to have the Foundation’s involvement in this significant new building, which we hope will form an important part of the estate for centuries to come. It is also central to the realisation of our long-term strategy, through which we hope to create an environment that allows all members of our community to achieve their full potential and ultimately to benefit society.’
The Wolfson Foundation is an independent charity that supports and promotes excellence in the fields of science, health, education and the arts and humanities. Since it was established in 1955, over £900 million (£1.9 billion in real terms) has been awarded to more than 11,000 projects throughout the UK, all on the basis of expert review.
