Circles of Giving
All levels of support are based on four essential commitments: to pray for the College; to promote the College; to participate in the life of the College; and to provide annual gifts to the College. These levels are intended to demonstrate how much the College appreciates those who value Christian higher education and understand the importance of sharing some of their blessings with the Trinity community.
The Founders Circle is a giving opportunity created to broaden the number of participants who contribute annually to the Trinity Fund. The College seeks to recognize alumni and friends who support the Trinity Fund at levels between $500 and $999, and offer them many of the same benefits that President's Circle members enjoy. These include advance notice of upcoming events and priority seating for Trinity events; the quarterly President's Newsletter; complimentary tickets to Christmastide; and an annual gift. New participants in the Founders Circle will receive a special gift of a Trinity Christian College pen and key chain set upon their enrollment.

Members of the President's Circle pledge an annual gift of $1000 per year to the Trinity Fund.
In addition to the benefits mentioned above, they are also invited to attend Jubilation! in October and a holiday dinner for President's Circle members and guests between performances of Christmastide. Upon enrollment, new President's Circle members receive an inscribed, leather-bound NIV Bible signed by the College President.

The final circle of friends functions in a slightly different way. Rather than "joining" the Benefactors Circle, the College simply honors individuals or couples whose combined gifts to the Trinity Fund reach the level of $5,000 or more each year. Upon initial recognition to the Benefactors Circle, participants will receive an engraved crystal paperweight from the College.
