Trinity Sanctuary Fund

We know that many in the College community are interested in fundraising for various agencies that deliver support in Ukraine. As part of our commitment to being a University of Sanctuary and part of the Scholars at Risk Network, we are committed to offering our physical and academic resources to give appropriate sanctuary, succour and support to the people and country of Ukraine.

To this end, the College is establishing the Trinity Sanctuary Fund, a flexible fund responding to the diverse and ever-changing needs of asylum seekers and refugees. Established now to address the huge challenges faced by students and scholars from Ukraine, the Fund will also be open to other at-risk groups such as those fleeing war and persecution in Afghanistan and Syria.

The Fund will provide those most in need with targeted financial payments, along with a programme of intensive supports, such as language classes, counselling, tech support and, where applicable, tuition fees.

Trinity Development & Alumni is working to secure philanthropic investment in the Fund and will be reaching out to alumni across the world keen to express their solidarity and support by contributing to this effort.
