My HCC Gives Back: A Day to Celebrate Holy Cross College

2015 bonfireLaunched in 2017, My HCC Gives Back—the Holy Cross College annual Day of Giving—unites Saints everywhere for a day of support, celebration, and connection.

Despite the difficult circumstances of COVID-19, on April 21, 2020, Saints all across the globe stepped up to unlock $50,000 in challenge gifts. Here’s how the Holy Cross College family gave back in 2020:

In 24 hours the college raised a combined total of $104,548 from 883 donors. This included $54,548 in gifts and $50,000 in challenge gifts.  We surpassed our donor goal of 875 donors.

In addition, more than 300 donors participated in the Holtz Family Challenge, making a gift before noon on April 21st and unlocking an additional $10,000. The Holtz Family Challenge was generously supported by former Fighting Irish head football coach Lou Holtz and his son, Skip, who attended Holy Cross and later graduated from the University of Notre Dame.
