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, 2,285 alumni, parents, and friends donated nearly $34 million. The generosity of President's Council donors is vital to ensuring the high quality of today's educational experience for students and advancing the mission of Holy Cross for years to come.

Make a Gift
Shared Gifts, Shared Benefits
Since a gift to the College often is a shared decision, Holy Cross couples who give at President’s Council levels will be identified as “joint donors.” For example, a gift of $2,500 enables a couple to be listed jointly as Patron donors.
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 email@example.com for matching gift information.
President's Council Events
Support at the President's Council level provides essential resources for Holy Cross and also offers wonderful social occasions for donors. This year, President's Council members enjoyed special events as part of the Holy Cross in Boston Weekend.
To keep members abreast of events and news happening on campus as efficiently and expeditiously as possible, two communication vehicles exclusive to PC members have been established — the quarterly Being More newsletter and From the Desk of the President emails. If you are not receiving the Being More newsletter or Father's emails, please email Jen DiFranco, director of annual leadership giving, or call (508) 793-2246 with updated contact information.
