Ways to Give: Regular Donations

When you give to our Annual Fund, you are trusting us to use your funds wherever needed around property. Whether we use those funds for infrastructural or program needs, we promise that your funds will help further our ministry of welcoming all people and sharing God’s gifts of community and hospitality in a natural coastal environment.
When you give to our Endowment Fund, you are helping ensure the future of our center. Your financial support is invested for growth, which helps provide Trinity Center a perpetual source of income and helps secure its place on this island off this coastal island.
When you give to our Scholarship Fund, you are helping needy children attend our Camp Trinity and Sound to Sea programs. By giving to this fund, you are literally giving the gift of Trinity Center to someone who otherwise might not be able to attend.

Ways to Give as a Friend of Trinity

You could support Trinity Center by contributing to the reduction of the center’s consolidated debt. When Penn became executive director in late 2006, the previous administration’s debt was consolidated by the Trinity Board of Managers. Total consolidated debt was $444,000. Ten years later, that debt has never been added to, and the total has been steadily paid down. If you’d like to help eliminate the debt, consider donating today.
You could support Trinity Center by contributing to the Trinity and Beyond Endowment. This endowment has already been established to help Trinity Center perform the operational upkeep required for a facility this size on an island off the coast. Yearly disbursements from funds held by our own Episcopal Foundation would be used for scheduled maintenance. Friends of Trinity who wish to remain anonymous have issued a challenge grant; they will match all contributions to Trinity and Beyond (to a maximum of $50,000) until the end of 2018.

You could support Trinity Center by contributing to specific projects that need to be completed while we work to build the endowment. If you are interested in donating towards any of the current projects below, please make sure to note which one in the Comments section of the Donations Form. If you are interested in making a donation towards a project not listed here, please contact Stephanie Rudolph by email ( or phone (252-247-5600, Ext. 32).
