TCD Association & Trust

The TCD Association & Trust provides grant support for a wide variety of College projects where funding is not available from mainstream resources. Its committee, with administrative support from Trinity Development and Alumni, is made up of Trinity graduates who operate on a volunteer basis.

One of the main sources of funding for the TCD Association & Trust comes from the TCD Affinity Credit Card. With over 10,000 cardholders to date, a percentage of the annual turnover on these cards is donated back to College by Bank of Ireland.
