The Office of Parent Leadership Giving provides opportunities for parents to participate in the life of the College, and in their students’ Holy Cross experience. Parents invest in Holy Cross in many ways: by sharing their time, by offering internships in their businesses and by giving of their financial resources.
More than 1,000 Holy Cross parents give to the Parents Fund
and other college priorities, and many continue to support Holy Cross long after their children have graduated.
"We are extremely pleased with the education our boys have received at Holy Cross, both inside and outside of the classroom. The College's focus on community service and spiritual development as well as intellectual growth permeates the Holy Cross community—we see this in our boys and their college friends, who are all courteous, compassionate and responsible young people."
~ Cece and Michael Donoghue P15, 13
"Holy Cross has instilled in our children self-discipline, critical thinking skills, spiritual growth and the ability to communicate. It has been a pleasure to watch our son and daughter evolve into confident, well-rounded adults."
~ Barbara and Steve Malfitano P13, 10
"At Holy Cross, not only has our daughter learned skillful judgement, but she has also developed an appreciation for exploring her interests. We are thrilled that her sister has also chosen Holy Cross, and we anticipate that both will enter the world well prepared to meet the challenges that await them."
~ Patricia and Jim Lilis P16, 14
2014 Senior Parent Gift
This year's Senior Parent Gift will raise support for Faculty Resources. Why Faculty Resources? Because it is faculty who are at the heart of the educational experience at Holy Cross. Faculty at Holy Cross serve as mentors, coaches, and guides, working with students in and outside the classroom. The Senior Parent Gift will benefit faculty and serve as an expression of gratitude.
Senior Parent Gift Committee: Chairs — Liz and Tim Orie P17,14; Committee — JoAnn and Ari Daskalakis P17,14, Maureen Varley '76 and Boris Moczula P14,11,09, Mary Ann and James McLean P17,11, Donna and James Rizzo P14.
On Feb. 3, we launched the Parent-to-Parent Spring Giving Challenge. Thanks to a small group of generous Holy Cross parents, all new and increased "parent" gifts to the College made on Feb. 3 through May 15 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $100,000. We hope that this challenge will inspire Holy Cross parents to make a current-use gift to the College that will help enrich and enhance all areas of the student experience and advance the mission of Holy Cross.
