What is the Trinity Fund?
Named for the whole College, since its benefits are seen everywhere, the Trinity Fund is an operational fund for Trinity Christian College that supplements the school’s income from tuition.
The College is determined to prepare students for lives of service by providing them with a well-rounded, rigorous college experience, while also maintaining a reasonable tuition rate for every student that attends. In doing so, the income the school receives through tuition does not meet the expenses required to support that experience.
Therefore, Trinity seeks charitable contributions to help bridge the gap between what students pay to attend the College and the cost of the education they receive. These contributions make up the Trinity Fund.
In the simplest of terms, your gift saves students tuition dollars. Without your support, either tuition would increase, or the quality of a Trinity education would decrease. Your gift, regardless of size, makes all the difference!

Know the Facts:
The annual Trinity Fund goal is $1.15 million.
This dollar amount contributes to the annual operating budget of the College to pay for the resources students need.
Increasing the average student’s 4-year tuition cost by $3,285* would be required if not for the Trinity Fund.
Without the Trinity Fund being a source of income for the College, the only other way to maintain the same level of education currently being provided to students would be to increase the other source of income -- tuition.
(*Assumes a student body of 1,400.)
