Officials say the university raised nearly $20 million in gifts and pledges from a large variety of sources during the 2013-2014 academic year which surpassed the previous record of $15 million which was set seven years ago. Trine President Doctor Earl D. Brooks II said "fundraising of this magnitude ensures Trine can continue to offer the best learning environment and experiences for our students.” According to a university press release, there were over 3,100 donations. Cash gifts were up by 65 percent while endowed giving had a 60 percent increase. The annual scholarship golf outing and the Black and White Scholarship Gala set records as well.
