There are many ways to support Trinity, but we always encourage donors to think of the Annual Fund first and foremost. Annual Fund support is the most flexible and essential funding for Trinity, and while unrestricted, you can opt to have your annual gift dedicated solely to scholarship support (just indicate AF Scholarship on your check, or in the drop-down menu for online donations). Annual fund gifts can also be made in memory or honor of a family member or loved one, or for a professor or classmate who made your experience at Trinity extra special. All gifts in honor or memory of another will be acknowledged to the donor and a note sent to the honoree, as appropriate. Below are different options for making your gift and or pledge to Trinity:

  • Make an Online donation today using Visa, Mastercard or American Express and put your gift into action immediately. The most common gifts made online are for Annual Fund, Annual Fund Scholarship, and Reunion and Class funds.
  • Credit/Debit Card donations can be made with Visa, MasterCard, and American Express either online, or using Trinity’s reply envelope, or by calling the Development Office at 202-884-9720.
  • Make a gift via Check, payable to Trinity Washington University and mail to: Trinity Washington University, Office of Development, 125 Michigan Avenue NE, Washington DC, 20017

Please keep in mind that Matching Gifts from employers and former employers provide double and sometimes triple impact for Trinity. Check with your company’s Human Resources department to find out if your employer matches charitable gifts. If so, obtain a matching gift form and send it to Trinity with your gift. Trinity will file for the match and let you know when it is received. (Retirees are also often eligible to have their donation matched, so check with your former employer.

Gifting a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from an individual retirement arrangement (IRA) directly to Trinity can have certain advantages as well and IRA account holders who were at least age 70.5 as of Dec. 31, 2019, can contribute some or all of their IRAs to charity. Gifts of Appreciated Securities can also help maximize the value of your gift to Trinity and may also offer substantial tax benefits.  Trinity accepts both stock and wire transfers. This is an easy process.  For more information on stock and asset transfers please contact: Patrick D. Kellogg, kelloggp@trinitydc.edu or 202-884-9721.
