What has Trinity meant to you? While it is possible to measure your four years at Trinity in dollars spent, we hope that many of you would also describe your experiences in other ways: in the memories you’ve made, the laughs you’ve shared, the friendships you’ve built and the experiences you’ve gained. As members of the Senior Gift Committee, we know that every dollar you spend is hard-earned and that tuition ain’t cheap. We’re seniors, too; we can empathize! But we also recognize the value of our experiences at Trinity and invite you to join us in our support of a future peer.
Each year, the funds raised through the Senior Gift are put in a scholarship for an incoming first-year. This year, the Senior Gift Committee has set a goal of 69 percent participation from the senior class. With your help, we believe this is possible. We challenge seniors to make a donation of $20.14, corresponding with our graduation year, allowing you to sign a brick in Murchison Tower.
Yet, we want to emphasize that any donation you can give, above one dollar, will help the Class of 2014 reach our participation rate goal. Your donation has a direct impact on the ability of a prospective student to attend Trinity, a student who will be able to share in the same experiences we have come to cherish.
Look for us at events like Senior Happy Hour (Feb. 12 at 4 p.m. in the Skyline Room), Countdown to Commencement (Feb. 12-13, from 10:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m) and Duckapalooza (Feb. 27th at the acequia). If you’d like to make your donation online, visit trinity.edu/give. In the box marked “Special Instructions” at the bottom of the page, write “Senior Gift ““ Class of ’14.”
We hope to see you soon!
