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, 2,434 alumni, parents, and friends donated nearly $24 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.

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 for matching gift information.

See if your company offers a matching gift option. »
