CHICAGO, April 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Trinity High School, an International Baccalaureate, all-girl Catholic school in River Forest, IL announced today that in an effort to support their school families impacted by the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, they would make a portion of their strategic reserve fund available for tuition grants.
Trinity is more than a school—it's a family. Families come together in times of need. For more than 102-years the Trinity High School family has weathered world wars, the Great Depression and countless other challenges. In the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic, Trinity will follow the example of the strong women who began the school more than a century ago. The school will continue to educate women, take care of their students, and continue building a community grounded in strength, knowledge and faith.
Trinity High School has received the approval of the Board of Directors and the Sponsors Council of the Sinsinawa Dominican Schools to earmark $1 million of the school's Strategic Reserve Fund to support Trinity families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic crisis with a one-time tuition assistance grant for the 2020-21 school year. To ensure that they can assist every student in need, the school has also established the #BlazerReliefFund and hope to raise an additional $1 million to match their institutional support.
"We have been fortunate that for more than a century Trinity High School and the Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa have been such conscientious fiscal stewards. Once the idea was raised, there really wasn't much debate—it was the right thing to do. Trinity is family, and family helps one another when times are tough. " -Laura Curley, Trinity High School President
