Each reunion awakens memories of wonderful friends, and special occasions. It also remind us of how important Trinity College has been in our lives. Although the celebration will be virtual for Reunion 2021, it is a time to feel proud about being part of an institution that has always provided an outstanding education.
One of the wonderful traditions of Reunion is the act of giving back. We invite you to invest in today’s students by supporting one of our priority projects. We hope you will consider a special gift in honour of your reunion year.

Reunion 2021 – Giving Priorities
Lawson Centre for Sustainability: One of the most memorable aspects of the collegiate experience is feeling a sense of place and belonging. However, Trinity College has not added substantial space to the College since the completion of the Gerald Larkin building in 1961. As part of the Living Trinity Campaign, the Lawson Centre for Sustainability will address the need for space, offering rooms as well as academic and community space, inviting more of the student population to participate in student life.
Mental Health Program: Mental and emotional health is a significant part of what makes students academically successful. Trinity College is committed to providing programming and support that promote mental health and well-being. The Mental Health Program provides a variety of services that aim to support student wellness including one-on-one counselling, weekly programs aimed at building community and helping students connect, and wellness programs.
Urgent Bursary Support: The immediate impact of COVID-19 saw countless requests from Trinity students for emergency funds in the first few weeks of the pandemic alone. These requests for financial aid assisted with lost income, unanticipated travel expenses, and other emergency costs associated with the pandemic. Although Trinity College provides over $1M in financial aid each year, we anticipate this need close to doubling as financial strains continue. We rely on your generous support to help us provide the finances our students require to continue in their education.
BIPOC Bursary Support: As we attempt to break down the systemic issues that prevent students who identify as Black, Indigenous and people of colour (BIPOC) from receiving an excellent education, we recognize that finances play a role in preventing the BIPOC community from accessing education. BIPOC Bursary Support is available to students for whom finances is a barrier. Join with the students, alumni, faculty and staff who have contributed to this important fund with your own donation today.
The Trinity Fund: Through the flexible dollars of the Trinity Fund, you contribute to Trinity’s most urgent needs and important programs. In this unprecedented academic year, with the College and students affected by the pandemic, donor support has become more important than ever before. Your gift will allow students to access important resources such as the John W. Graham Library, the Writing Centre and the Student Services Centre. The supportive community that is so vital to the Trinity College experience is only possible with your help.
