  • How Can We Support The School?

    The tradition of fundraising in independent schools is necessary and important. We are a 501C3 non-profit organization, and the additional funds we raise through the Advancement Office support our mission and advance our school. 

    The Annual Fund: This initiative is the most important fundraising effort of the year. When you give to the Annual Fund, you are investing in the teachers, coaches, facilities, technology, athletes, and visual and performing arts of our beloved school. We are proud that our faculty, staff, and board of directors participate 100% to this initiative.

    Trinity Giving Day is the 2nd Tuesday of October each year, and we invite all families to consider donating to the Annual Fund on this day. 

    Trinity Charger Alliance (TCA) Gala: The Trinity School Gala is the biggest event of the year for the TCA. This large fundraiser allows the TCA to continue to provide gifts that benefit the entire school.

Prospective Parent

I want you to know that I have visited quite a few schools in the Permian Basin area; for my husband and I, it is extremely important to provide the best education possible to our daughter and son. Trinity School was our dream school, not only for the obvious reasons, but because you have been the only person who has taken the time to truly let us know how the school works, the quality of the teachers, the skills that the kids are learning, and the safe and encouraging environment that surrounds them.
