Trinity College Foundation Turns Dreams into Reality

May 04, 2023

A Trinity College education can help turn a dream into a reality. While many of our students have great abilities, some may not always have the opportunity to fulfil them. The Trinity College Foundation was established in 1995 with the vision of creating a world of opportunity for students who attend the College and since its inception, every cent donated has gone towards fulfilling this aim.

The Foundation facilitates fundraising for special projects throughout the College and provides funding for ongoing scholarships as well as supports students to participate in Operation Flinders and aids students in need through the Spirit of Trinity Fund.

As current students are the recipients of past generosity, future generations depend on the continuing and vital support of current parents, old scholars and friends of the College. Funds are raised through donations, sponsorship and special events like the annual Trinity Foundation Dinner and silent auction.

Now in its twenty fifth year this annual event attracts a wide cross section of our community including parents, friends, staff, College suppliers and old scholars. In addition to a wonderful night of entertainment, guests enjoy a sumptuous three course dinner and the opportunity to place a bid for one or more of the exciting donated auction items to help raise money to support the Foundation. The 2023 event – A Foundation Glitter Ball will be held on Friday 23 June at the National Wine Centre. Tickets can be purchased online here.

If you’re unable to attend, we invite families to donate non-perishable items to create gourmet hampers that are included in the silent auction. Sweet or savoury, all items will be gratefully received including chocolate bars, chocolate boxes, sweet biscuits, savoury biscuits, crackers, coffee, tea, olive oil, nuts, olives, dried fruit, coffee, tea, drinking chocolate or any other non-perishable gourmet item. Donations can be delivered to the Foundation Office or placed in the Foundation Dinner donation box located in your school’s front office. Every donation, no matter how small, will be a big help!

The lives of the students at Trinity College has been enriched by those who have helped shape our College by giving in the past - now you can play a part in ensuring the generous spirit that helped shape our College continues.
