Generosity at Trinity


Generosity at Trinity

Your generosity plays a vital role in supporting our mission to educate students in the classical tradition and teach them through a rich and unhurried education, all for the Glory of Christ.

Your stewardship—through your time, treasures, and talents—transforms the Trinity experience and ensures that current and future generations of students will have the opportunity to know that they are loved by God. Whether you choose to support the Trinity Fund, Endowments, Restricted Gifts, or Sunshine Tuition Assistance Relief Fund (STAR), your gift will help us continue to advance this mission.

Trinity Fund

The Trinity Fund is the heartbeat of our school's mission to educate the next generation of students by teaching them to love learning for its own sake, pursue truth, goodness, and beauty, and live a rich and unhurried life —all for the glory of Christ.

The Trinity Fund is our primary fundraising effort, allowing us to advance the mission of Trinity. Giving to the fund supports every aspect of a Trinity education, from arts and athletics to educational materials and faculty development.


Endowments support the long-term growth of Trinity by generating annual support while still growing in total value over time. Families, organizations, and individuals have collectively given more than $1M, allowing our endowment to grow to a total value of over $1.6M today.

Your family has the opportunity to create named endowment funds at Trinity to support the scholarships or programs that are important to you. 

Endowments support areas such as faculty professional development, scholarships for students with financial need, and scholarships that promote socioeconomic and racial diversity.

A named and unrestricted endowment can be established with an investment of $50,000, while a named and restricted endowment can be established with an investment of $100,000.

Sunshine Tuition Assistance Relief Fund (STAR)

Since its inception in 2015, the Sunshine Tuition Assistance and Relief (STAR) Fund has distributed over $80,000 in emergency tuition funds to students whose families are facing unexpected financial hardships.

Past recipients of STAR fund aid have received funding after going through situations such as unexpected medical bills, facing the death of a family member, or other crisis. When you make a gift to the STAR fund, you’re directly impacting a family who might otherwise struggle to keep their child at Trinity.
