Community Partnerships

Each grade level has committed to year-long partnership with a local nonprofit for targeted service and support.

Students work with peers to provide targeted service and support to their community partner.  This manifests through community service projects as well as spreading awareness through education about each nonprofit's mission to our own Trinity community and beyond.  

Grade-Level Community Partners (2021-22):

Grade 12 (Class of 2022) - The Doorways
  • The Doorways provides lodging and support to thousands of families every year who need to be close to life-saving medical care in Richmond. With 117 rooms, we are one of the largest hospitality houses in the country and proudly operate entirely on donations. We are looking for volunteers who are willing to help us provide some small comforts of home to our guests so they have everything they need to feel supported in their recovery process.
Grade 11 (Class of 2023) - ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation
  • ASK was founded in 1975 by a group of parents in the pediatric oncology clinic at MCV (now the Children'sHospital of Richmond at VCU.) Today, we're Central Virginia's largest and most comprehensive provider of support services for children with cancer and their families. Our support begins from the moment of diagnosis and extends through treatment and beyond.
Grade 10 (Class of 2024) - Real Life
  • REAL LIFE serves individuals who have been impacted by incarceration, homelessness, or substance use disorder by giving them an opportunity to overcome their personal and community barriers that hinder their pathway to a Thriving Life.
Grade 9 (Class of 2025) - SHOOD
  • Shood is a non-profit that collects men’s and women’s gently used running shoes, reconditions and distributes them to those who are homeless or living in poverty in Richmond, Virginia.
Grade 8 (Class of 2026) - Goochland Cares
  • "Our mission is to provide basic human services and health care to our Goochland neighbors in need.  Food pantry, clothes closet, medical office, dental treatment, GED/ESL educational support."
“We are excited to launch these partnerships and share our Titan spirit in supporting these fantastic organizations,” said Laura Hamlin Weiler ’00, Trinity’s head of community engagement. “We want students to make a strong, meaningful connection with a local organization and, in turn, educate the Trinity community (and beyond) about the importance of each of our community partners.”
