About Us

Trinity Foundation is the philanthropic office of Trinity College Dublin. Established on 30 March 1994 as an independent charity in the Republic of Ireland, it is a charitable trust within the meaning of Section 207 of the Taxes Consolidation Act 1997. The Foundation was re-branded as Trinity Development & Alumni (TDA) in 2014.

TDA is responsible for and exists solely to support the university's development (fundraising) and alumni relations activities. We have 45 staff working across various functions – fundraising, alumni relations and development, communications and events, database, finance, and administration.

Our work involves raising philanthropic funds for university priorities, strengthening links with alumni and providing support services to the university, its schools, alumni, students and friends.

We play a vital role in ensuring the university has the financial resources and other support to remain a leading, internationally recognised university. Read about the impact of philanthropy on Trinity in our most recent donor report:
