You, as our graduate and friend, are part of a great Trinity success story. The University is famous for the excellence of its graduates: writer Jonathan Swift, author of Gulliver's Travels; Nobel Prize winners physicist Ernest Walton and playwright Samuel Beckett; philosophers George Berkeley and Edmund Burke; mathematician William Rowan Hamilton who discovered Quaternions; playwright Oscar Wilde; and former President of Ireland and current Chancellor of the University of Dublin, Mary Robinson.
By donating to Trinity you allow young people to pursue their dreams, fulfil their potential and enable the College to maintain its world-class reputation. By supporting new programmes and scholarships you will have a positive impact on the present and future of this great University. In addition you are helping attract other supporters through your personal participation.
All Trinity College supporters are recognised on our online honour roll, receive a copy of our annual donor newsletter, and where possible will be invited to attend an event in Trinity.
