Trent University's 50 Million Campaign Exceeds Goal

We need your help to make a difference, today

Giving a gift to Trent’s Annual Fund means that your contribution will be put immediately to use helping make a difference in the lives of students today.

Tuition fees and government support only provide funding for operational and educational initiatives at Trent. Without your help, the things that make a difference in the lives of our students every single day fall by the wayside

An accessible campus. Supporting student success. Making education affordable for all. On-campus services. These are just a few of the ways we UNLEASH your support, turning it into meaningful action. Click here to make a donation that will start making a difference, right now.

Please click here to see our generous 2017 supporters, and please click here to join them today!

An accessible campus

MV - 1 Accessibility Van

Your donations UNLEASH a welcoming, accessible environment for students at Trent University.

The MV-1 accessibility vehicle helps Trent provide full access to campus facilities for students with disabilities. Without our donors, this initiative would not have been possible.

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) offers support to those with identified disabilities so they can achieve their academic and personal goals. From health and wellness, to note taking to adaptive technologies, SAS is here to help. This year, Trent was able to fund a full-time mental health nurse to support student wellness, using your funds.

Supporting Student Successes

New technology from SAS has allowed legally blind Chemical Physics student, Ryan Cole, to take his own notes as well as conduct vital lab work himself. "To get a degree in Chemical Physics, I really needed to be able to do certain tasks and lab work on my own. I had a lack of experience with experimental work but this technology opened up a whole new world for me.”

Experiential learning is a key priority at Trent University – giving students hands on experience in their fields of study, internship positions in their areas of interest, or on-campus employment that provides them valuable skills they will use for the rest of their lives are just a few of the ways we focus on student success here at Trent.

We know that UNLEASHING student success matters to our donors, and your donations continue to make daily differences in their success, learning, and education.

Providing Affordable Education

Many of our students rely on financial assistance to help them reach their goals. Thanks to generous donors, like you, Trent is able to offer more Scholarships and Bursaries than any other small Canadian university and continually ranks #1 in Maclean’s University Rankings in student financial support.

Recent graduate, Chanel Christophe, appreciated the generous support he received while at Trent. “I am well aware that my journey through Trent would not have been possible had it not been for the kind support of donors who pledged their support for students like myself.”

Your donations UNLEASH an affordable education for students like Chanel, every single year.

On Campus Safety

Your donations unleash a safe, convenient campus for Trent Students, every day. Student services like the Trent University Emergency First Response Team (TUEFRT) and Walk Home are services our students use every day, that you support directly.

Trent’s Walk Home Program offers peace of mind. The program provides a safe alternative to walking alone at night and is designed to accompany students, faculty and staff members both on the Symons Campus and downtown at Traill and Champlain College Annex.

TUEFRT makes Trent’s campus safe, and provides valuable, hands-on experience for its team members that translate into careers in the healthcare field. TUEFRT students receive the same certifications in first-aid and first-response that firefighters do. Your donations make this possible.
