Be a Trocaire Champion

 Your participation matters.

The Trocaire Champions employee giving campaign has officially begun for the 2018-2019 fiscal year!  We are hoping to increase the participation rate from 75% to 80% of full-time employees and from 35% to 50% of all employees.  We need your help!

While gifts to the annual fund are vital to the success of our students, your participation is what matters most.  A strong employee participation rate sends a message to funders that Trocaire employees are invested in the college, so they should be too. These are funders we rely on to finance strategic projects that keep Trocaire competitive. In a time when colleges are merging and closing, we are committed to remaining a pillar in the community, but we can’t do it without you.  The truth is, GIFTS OF ANY SIZE help the participation rate. That means you make a gift that fits your ability. Everyone can do something … but if no one does anything, it hinders our shared success.

I hope you will consider renewing your 2017-2018 gift, or making a first-time gift, so we can say “Everybody’s in!”

New this year!

In an effort to celebrate the honor of Trocaire College being recognized by The Chronicle of Higher Education’s 2018 Best Places to Work, we are giving you a chance to recognize individuals who are part of your Trocaire family.  Anyone who participates will have the option of making their gift in honor of a fellow co-worker.  Names will be displayed on the Trocaire Champions torch located in the back foyer of the Commons at the Main Campus. Honorees will also receive a note card stating a gift was made in their name.

A drawing for (2) $25 gift cards will be held weekly, as well as a grand prize drawing at the end of the campaign.  The earlier you make your gift the more chances you will receive. Make a gift by October 5 to receive five (5) chances, October 12 for four (4) chances, October 19 for three (3) chances, October 26 for two (2) chances, and November 2 for one (1) chance.  Winners will be announced weekly in The Blaze.
