About

If 5,000 new alumni donors give by June 30, Holy Cross will receive $500,000 from a group of anonymous donors.

For 175 years, Holy Cross has been making a difference in the world.

Holy Cross Difference Makers can be found in every field of work. They are volunteers, parents, coaches, teachers, CEOs, humanitarians, artists, politicians, scientists, activists, veterans and much more.

As we conclude our year-long celebration of our 175th anniversary, please make a gift to help Holy Cross continue to prepare students for lives of impact. 

Make your gift. Challenge your friends. Talk about it on social media. Make phone calls. Send texts — encourage everyone you know to give back to Holy Cross!
