President's Council

Aspire. Lead. Reach.

Since 1967, President's Council has been Holy Cross' premier annual giving society. Those who give at President's Council levels have historically contributed more than half of the total dollars given to Holy Cross in any year. In the most recent fiscal year, 1,700 alumni, parents, and friends donated nearly $31 million!  The support of President's Council members is vital to ensuring the high quality of today's educational experience for students.

PC Dinner 2015 Recap »

To keep members abreast of events and news happening on campus as efficiently and expeditiously as possible,  two new communication vehicles exclusive to PC members have been established — the quarterly PC Leader newsletter and "From the Desk of the President" emails. These web pages have also been reformatted so that they are easier to navigate and quickly provide you with answers to your questions. 

If you are not receiving the Being More newsletter or Father's emails, please email Kelly Whalen, director of President's Council, or call (508) 793-2421 with updated contact information.

Thank you for your most generous support of the College of the Holy Cross.

Shared Gifts, Shared Benefits

Since a gift to the College often is a shared decision, Holy Cross couples who join President’s Council will be identified as “joint members.” For example, a gift of $2,500 enables a couple to be listed jointly as Patron members. 

Matching Gifts Count

You can maximize your ability to participate in President’s Council with a corporate matching gift. If your company, or your spouse’s company, matches charitable gifts, you may use that match as part of your President’s Council commitment. Please be sure to contact your organization’s human resources department or for matching gift information.
