Fund for Colleagues in Need (FCN)


Trinity has created the Fund for Colleagues in Need (FCN) to provide emergency financial assistance to full-time employees with extraordinary needs.  This fund is supported through private charitable contributions from Trinity personnel.  We are grateful to all faculty and staff who make donations.

We aim to raise a fund of about $25,000.  An anonymous donor has made a challenge grant of $10,000 which means that all gifts will be matched on a 1:1 basis up to a total of $10,000, thus seeding the fund with at least $20,000 to start.

Fund Administration

Trinity’s Executive Director of Human Resources (EDHR) will administer the FCN.  The EDHR will recommend individual grants to the president who must make the final approval; the president or EDHR may consult with supervisors as necessary.

For information on the grants or to apply, please contact Tracey Prince Ross, Executive Director of Human Resources.

For questions about giving, please contact Ashley Bianchi in the Development Office.
