This Trent Day, in the spirit of giving, support Trent students by becoming a high-impact Trent Fund monthly donor or through a one-time donation. Your generous gift to the Trent Fund will directly support students with such things as on-campus employment, financial aid, experiential learning opportunities, mentoring, and engagement with alumni networks.
