What does the campaign goal of 4,000 donors mean?

The goal of 4,000 donors reflects how many more donors we need to make their first gift this fiscal year so that we can maintain our consistent top-10 national ranking for alumni participation in annual giving.

To be counted as a donor this fiscal year, when does my gift need to be in?

Our fiscal year ends on June 30, therefore online and credit card gifts must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. EDT and checks must be postmarked by June 30 to count for this fiscal year.

Does my gift have more impact if I give on or before June 30? 

Yes! An amazing and generous anonymous donor will give $100,000 for every 1,000 donors, up to $400K – amplifying your gift!

And for the classes of 2013 - 2023, for every dollar given, a generous, anonymous donor will match gifts two to one for the Holy Cross Fund up to $100,000.

Check out the matches and challenges section for details on other ways to increase your impact. Your gift may meet the criteria for other challenges or matches.

What options exist for making a gift?

Our fiscal year closes on Friday, June 30 so we strongly encourage you to make your gift online before or by 11:59 p.m. EDT on June 30 to be counted as a donor for this fiscal year.

Checks can be mailed in via USPS but must be postmarked prior to or on Friday, June 30, 2023 in order to be counted for this fiscal year. If mailing via UPS or FedEx, check must be received by June 30, not simply postmarked by June 30, in order to be counted for the 2023 fiscal year.

You can make a gift with stocks or securities. Please call us at 877-433-1843, or email our team at hcfund@holycross.edu, to let us know, so we can count your gift.

Gifts through donor-advised funds can also be made. To make a distribution to Holy Cross through your donor-advised fund, please contact your financial institution and include “HC fiscal year end 2023” along with your gift designation. Let our team know at hcfund@holycross.edu so we can count your support.

What payment methods do you accept online?

In addition to debit and credit cards, you can make your gift using PayPal, Venmo, GooglePay, ApplePay and/or Cryptocurrency.
