Trinity Bursary Fund – there’s no such thing as small change.

#NoSmallChange Telephone Campaign raises £120,000 for bursaries at Trinity

We we delighted to receive overwhelming support for our first telephone fundraising campaign in support of the Trinity Bursary Fund.

Over a two week campaigning period our 12 alumni ambassadors spoke to well over 500 Trinity parents, alumni and other supporters, and received gifts and pledges amounting to £120,475 – well above our campaign goal of £100,000.

Just over a third of all people contacted – 170 in total – chose to change the lives of children needing help with fees, with support ranging from £5 one-off and regular gifts from our younger alumni, to regular gifts of £100 per month from our more established parent and alumni donors.

Support came from every quarter, with parents and alumni alike wholeheartedly signalling their approval of Trinity’s drive to ensure that we remain within reach of any child who would thrive here, not only for the difference it will make to them, but also for the way it shapes the school experience and values of our whole community.

In the 2018/19 school year some 275 parents and alumni became donors to Trinity. In acting together, their gifts mean that 6 additional pupils have been able to take up places who would not otherwise have been able to do so. Our donors have changed the lives of these young people forever.

Our thanks go to our 12 telephone ambassadors who worked so hard on the campaign and to all who have responded so magnificently. We will publish Trinity’s first annual Report on Giving later in the year and look forward to welcoming our donors at our annual reception on 18th November.

Our bursary programme helps hundreds of children whose families can’t afford school fees to receive a transformative education.  We want that to be within reach of any child who would thrive here, not only for the difference it will make to them, but also for the way it shapes the school experience and values of our whole community.

It’s not too late to become a donor to the #NoSmallChange campaign. Your gift doesn’t have to be large to make a big difference. It takes just 40 supporters committing to a gift of £1 per day – the price of half a cup of coffee – to fund a full bursary place and change a child’s life.

When it comes to the education of the young, there is no such thing as small change.
