About

UPDATE: We're nearly there!

The Holy Cross Community's response to the GivePurple challenge has been amazing — and inspiring!

Thank you for your support.

With only a few hours left, we have passed the 5,500 mark in donor participation — and from what we can tell, we are on the verge of setting the record for total number of donors to a private liberal arts college during a challenge like this.

We think we can get there, but are asking for your help - would you please reach out to your classmates, friends and teammates and help us set a record -- and help our students and future Crusaders? 

Thank you again for your support!!

UPDATE:  So far, Crusaders have surpassed all expectations!  The question remains:  How far can we go? In a mere 12 hours, we blew by the first goal.  And 18 hours later, the second goal was in the rear view mirror.  Here on campus, where Winter Homecoming is in full swing, the enthusiasm is contagious! Just now, two more grads have come forward with a final $200K challenge to see just how far we can go! Will we reach 4,800 donors? 5,000? To our knowledge, the most donors to a giving challenge by a fellow liberal arts institution is 5,600.  Can we beat that?

If you haven't made a gift yet, please consider joining the GivePurple effort my making your gift now.  If you already have, thank you!

UPDATE:  Thank you!  An anonymous alum was so moved by the tremendous spirit of the Holy Cross community and the phenomenal early response to this participation challenge that he is offering an additional gift of $500,000 (that's the Class of '82's $500,000 plus an additional $500,000....making this a $1 million challenge) if we reach 4,300 donors before midnight tomorrow!
Thanks again for your support.  Please spread the word!

Holy Cross. It’s part of you. In your treasured memories. In your heart and soul. A group of friends from the Class of 1982 has challenged the broader Holy Cross community to give back to the College. If 2,500 alumni, parents, students, and members of the campus community make a gift (of any size) February 5 - 6, they will give $500,000 to support all aspects of life on campus. Your gift makes a tangible difference in the lives of students today—and extends to those whose lives their dedication and compassion will touch tomorrow. Join the entire Holy Cross community in giving thanks by making a gift to show your pride.

Make your gift. Challenge your friends.Talk about it on social media. Make phone calls. Encourage everyone you know to give back to the College you love. 

You have until midnight on Saturday, February 6, to make your gift. All gifts will be counted in the Challenge.
