 Scholarship Awards and Grants: Top
The Foundation awards scholarships to selected students majoring in the study of long term health care. The Trinity Foundation recognizes the need for a holistic approach to health care delivery and is willing to assist individuals and educational institutions that share in this vision.

The scholarship program recently held the 1st Annual Shamrock Classic Golf Tournament in Cleveland, Tennessee with Jerry Faust as guest speaker. With over 25 teams in competition, the event was co-sponsored by Notre Dame High School and was a huge success. 

If you represent an institution, we are soliciting applications for grant money for these scholarships. If you are interested in a grant application and feel your institution follows the philosophies of our foundation then feel free to sign our guest book. We will send you information on the grants that will be available shortly. Once the foundation is fully endowed, we will be seriously looking for the right institution that fits our mission.

Community Service:
Trinity Foundation works as a support team for health care institutions, hospitals, long term care, assisted living, adult day care, retirement communities, drop in centers, acute care/sub acute facilities and Alzheimer's facilities. If you are a care provider in one of these settings, maybe we can help you. We can't be there right beside you, but we can be a resource for you, answer questions and help locate answers for you. Sometime it only takes one extra resource to enable a resident or family member to cope with the problems the disease is causing them.
Let us help you find the answer. 
We are your community service.
 
The videotape mentioned earlier will be of prime importance to the community service efforts of our foundation as well. We can help make life easier for people in need.

These four causes are the reason this foundation was established. William Frey III, Executive Director of the Trinity Foundation, believed there was a gap between all the unrelated single-cause foundations and associations in this big wonderful world of ours. He asked: "What about the group as a whole?", "Who is taking caring of the entire older adult population?". That is how the foundation began. It is a help to the older adults in a nursing home, to the younger adult not wanting to be classified as old, yet dealing a disease. The families of these people afflicted with a disease don't know where to turn. This is who we are dedicated in serving. 
 
Parkinson's Disease affects about 1 in 100
Americans over the age of 60 years.

 
Thank you for your interest.
