Crush the college cHALLENGE continues


As part of Trent’s Giving Tuesday, donations will support building college endowments to provide a sustainable, perpetual, dependable source of funds to strengthen students’ collegiate experience.

College communities promote student learning and leadership, civic engagement, and personal and academic development. Through colleges, students build skills and friendships that last a lifetime. They become involved in small-scale academic and social activities that have a large-scale impact on their university experience and on their preparedness for life after Trent. College endowments will be used to further build upon those experiences and skill sets for collegiate students.

With your support, college principals can offer more diverse programming, more accessible college spaces for students, and the enriched leadership experiences that will ensure our current students continue to have the same incredible collegiate experience that our alumni so fondly recall.

As an added incentive: the president’s office has issued a challenge to propel this day forward. The college with the highest participation per capita will receive $5,000, and the college that has the highest number of first-time donors will receive an additional $5,000.
