Thank You, HC!

What a day! Thank you to all who showed your love for the College of the Holy Cross. Because of your passion, the "I Love HC" challenge was a resounding and record–breaking success! Your generosity directly benefits our students, supporting financial aid, academic and faculty resources, faith and service initiatives, and athletics.


Today we surpassed the record for all liberal arts colleges for the number of donors to a 24-hour giving challenge, held by Colgate since 2013.


You are outstanding. Let’s shout it from the rooftops! Please accept our profound thanks for an incredible demonstration of love!

Holy Cross alumni are the best!

Holy Cross alumni are the best!

We have reached 5,000 donors and we have 3 hours left to break records! A group of anonymous alumni will give Holy Cross an additional $200,000 to see how high we can go.  
Today, our community demonstrated why it was recently ranked No. 12 among colleges and universities in the U.S. in Princeton Review’s new list, “Best Alumni Network.” Show your love today. We have until midnight (EST).

With 8 hours to go, let's get to 5,000!

Over the last 16 hours you have propelled us beyond our goal of 4,000 donors. With 8 hours to go, let's get to 5,000. If you have not yet shown your love, and made a gift, do so before midnight.

Senior Parent Challenge

Last year’s Give Purple Challenge welcomed gifts from 100 senior parents. If we can double that, and reach 200 or more Class of 2017 parents as part of this year’s “I Love HC” challenge, a small group of senior parents will donate an additional $50,000 to Holy Cross.

Athletics Challenge is on!

                                                    

                                                     

If 1,500 donors allocate their gift or a portion of their gift to our athletics teams, a group of alumni and parents will donate $150,000 directly to the Crusader Athletics Fund.
