Come Back and Give Back!

Every reunion awakens memories of wonderful friends, and special occasions. But reunions also remind us how important Trinity has been in our lives. Reunion is a time to feel proud about being part of an institution that has always provided an outstanding education to the innovators and leaders of tomorrow. 
 
Just as generous alumni supported us, it is vital that we invest in today’s students. There are many essential resources - beyond the cost of tuition - that make a Trinity education so special. In honour of your reunion year, we hope you will consider making a special donation to Trinity College.
