Trinity Prep Fund

A contribution to the Trinity Prep Fund benefits every student and supports the many elements that enable Trinity Prep to offer an excellent education year after year. 

Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of a Trinity Prep education, and the Trinity Prep Fund helps bridge the gap. We are grateful for the ongoing support from alumni, current parents, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty and staff, and friends. 

Donors can select a funding priority that is most meaningful to them from the following three areas, which have been identified as critical to the delivery of Trinity Prep’s mission to develop individuals who will excel in college and in life, contribute to their communities, lead in a changing society, and grow spiritually:
 
Area of Greatest Need* (allows Trinity Prep the flexibility to use your gift for the school’s most pressing needs.)

Tuition Assistance (provides tuition aid for students with demonstrated financial need.)

Faculty Professional Development (allows Trinity Prep to recruit, prepare, and retain exceptional teachers, providing them with the resources they need to succeed in the 21st century.)

*Undesignated gifts are directed to the Area of Greatest Need.

A Message From The Trinity Prep Fund Co-Chairs

It is a privilege to serve as the co-chairs of the Trinity Prep Fund this year. We are particularly excited to focus on increasing participation among our parent families, as well as our robust and growing alumni base. Each and every student is positively impacted by your gifts, both large and small. Your participation not only shows your support for those working with our students as teachers, coaches, advisors, and counselors each day, but helps to ensure that Trinity can continue to be the place where life-long friendships are fostered and grown. We appreciate your participation and look forward to the progress that we can accomplish together.

GO SAINTS!

Capital Projects

Having completed construction of the new Brokaw Hall in 2015, naming opportunities to support our facilities across campus are available. You may consider naming a classroom in honor of your student or beloved teacher or enhancing our athletic facilities. Building and maintaining high-quality, high-tech, and high-impact spaces for curricular, extra-curricular, arts, and athletic experiences is essential to Trinity Prep’s ability to attract and educate students for success in college and throughout their lives.

Endowment

For the past 49 years, Trinity Prep has provided some of the best students in Central Florida with an exceptional education and well-rounded experience. The future success of Trinity Prep is dependent on a strong, healthy endowment.

Much like investing in a portfolio created by donations, a contribution to the endowment is a lasting gift for our future. That's because a healthy endowment eases the school's financial burden during challenging times and allows Trinity Prep to prosper even more during fortunate times. To preserve the endowment, Trinity Prep manages investments responsibly and uses the annual interest from the account to fund financial assistance, programs, and initiatives aligned with our mission and donor specifications.
