 Giving to the Holy Cross Fund ...

Why does annual giving matter? Because the Holy Cross Fund provides day-to-day support for every aspect of the College.

Continues a tradition

Alumni participation in giving to Holy Cross consistently surpasses 50 percent, placing the College among the top 10 colleges and universities in the nation ... a proud Holy Cross tradition. Together with other alumni, students, parents, and friends, you can achieve remarkable results and have an immediate impact. Every gift counts. Last year, alumni, parents and friends gave the College $26 million, with an unprecedented $9.3 million in unrestricted gifts to the Holy Cross Fund.

Is powerful and personal

Gifts to the Fund help make a Holy Cross education accessible to thousands of promising students, regardless of their families' ability to pay.

Impacts the campus community

Your gift to the Holy Cross Fund goes to work immediately to strengthen and support Holy Cross' operating  budget, educational mission, and commitment to affordability.

Is an opportunity for leadership

Acting as the foundation of the Holy Cross Fund, President's Council members have historically contributed more than half of the total dollars given to the College in any year. Since 1967, the College's ability to achieve its high aspirations has depended in large part on the strength of the President's Council, who year after year provide consistent financial support to the College.

Requires energetic volunteers

Passionate alumni bolster the Holy Cross community by keeping classmates engaged with the College and each other.
