Three female students helping with fundraisingAnnual unrestricted gifts from alumni, parents, and friends:

  • Support all aspects of the College
  • Allow us to keep costs affordable for our students
  • Enable us to address unforeseen challenges and seize new opportunities

The Annual Fund’s priority areas include:

Financial Aid and Scholarships: Last year, over 82% of students received some form of aid and Holy Cross awarded $2.1 million in merit and need-based scholarships.

Academics: Your gifts to the academic core of Holy Cross ensure we can:

  • Hire expert faculty
  • Provide faculty with the resources they need to utilize new technology in the classroom
  • Keep our 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio to ensure personalized attention
  • Expand our academic programs

Student and Residential Life: Your support helps foster the out-of-classroom experience by providing opportunities for students to grow spiritually, create lasting memories, and forge lifelong friendships. Gifts to the Annual Fund support everything from Campus Ministry to Student Government.

Area of Greatest Need:  As a vital component of the College’s operating budget, the Holy Cross Fund impacts every aspect of the student experience. Annual, unrestricted gifts are applied directly to where they are needed most and allow the College to be flexible, responding to special opportunities as they arise. Gifts to the Area of Greatest Need are an investment in the mission of Holy Cross and make both the College stronger and our students the future scholars, citizens, leaders, and disciples of tomorrow.
