The Development Director’s Corner

Amid these uncertain and tumultuous times, it is crucial that we all center on what is most important in our lives – those we love and call friends, family, partners, mentors, and neighbors. Things are just things and stuff is just stuff – it’s having each other that matters the most. Our attention has been focused on how we care for and keep each other safe. All of us here at Trinity are concerned about and have tremendous care for all of you, our families, friends and students.

TST has a wonderful history of seeing what we have sown bear abundant fruit in our alumni. They have gone on to do extraordinary things. Each of our graduates (I am one! A proud 1993 graduate) finding his or her path and being the very best at what they do, will always be a reflection on the culture in which they were nurtured and cultivated. We would like to think that their formative journey under our guidance, care and education has a direct link with their successes in life…their contributions and impact.

The financial support that we have at TST allows and provides incredible outcomes we see in our students, as well as enhancements and growth to our school. This year, due to such extraordinary and unprecedented circumstances, we had to cancel our Spring Gala, but are working hard to create an online auction which will still see some of the spirit of the event that we all are used to and love. We will have our online silent and live auctions as soon as we can and are so very thankful to all of our supporters, those that have already committed to sponsoring the event and those that we hope to gain during the online auction. Also, this year, for the first time for TST, we will participate in East Texas Giving Day which is a program of the East Texas Communities Foundation and an annual event designed to provide an online giving venue for area nonprofits. This very important day of giving is TOMORROW!! All funds raised will support our wonderful school just as the Trinity Advantage Fund and the Spring Gala do. The proceeds from both of those crucial fundraisers help us cover expenses we have that tuition alone does not meet. The money we raise helps us provide the finest college preparatory education in the area. Please go to https://www.easttexasgivingday.org and type in Trinity School of Texas in the search field TOMORROW and help us have a successful Giving Day. I think people are looking for positive things to see and to be part of and to know they’re making a difference through their actions as well as their giving. We hope these opportunities to give to TST will give you all the same feeling of hope.

As we are all concerned with our ability to meet our financial needs, we have the same goal in mind, to keep family first! If you are fortunate and find that you are able to meet your needs, and those around you, please remember your TST family. As we count our many blessings, we count you…each of you and all of your continuous support. Thank you for choosing and trusting TST to nurture and educate the most valuable return on investment….your child. Together, day by day, month by month, year by year we are purposefully shaping those who will create our shared future. I hope you count us among your valuable investments.

Thank you for always being there for TST. With your help and support, we will always be here for you. Let’s remember to love each other, pray for those who have unmet needs, maintain our hope for a better tomorrow and persevere with character and grace! If you can’t do what you do, do what you can.

On behalf of all of us at Trinity School of Texas, thank you family and friends!
