What is the 1869 Challenge?
During the annual 1869 Challenge, Trinity comes together to support students, break records, and make history.
For 1,869 minutes, alumni, families, faculty, staff, students, and friends have a chance to support any area of the University they choose. Your gift can reflect your unique passion—for scholarships, sorority and fraternity life, music, athletics, or anything in between!
Year over year, your support surged past the previous year’s challenge, and this year we’ve got our sights set on 3,100 gifts. Reaching our goal unlocks an additional $31,000 for Trinity! Every gift counts, regardless of the amount.
And those aren’t the only stakes for this Challenge! From student orgs, greek council and athletics to academics and scholarships, there are other matching challenges to keep you motivated throughout the entire 1869 event.
The 1869 Challenges begins on Wednesday, Sept. 18, at 5 p.m. CDT and ends at 11:59 CDT on Thursday, Sept. 19.
During this 1,869 minutes for Trinity, we come together to show our commitment to the University and its students. Let’s make history together, as one Trinity!
