Gifts to the Parents Fund provide a way for parents to endorse the extraordinary education and opportunities the College provides their sons and daughters. Annual Fund gifts in particular allow the College flexibility in applying resources to the areas of greatest need over the course of each year and support every aspect of a Holy Cross education – internships, study abroad, faculty-student research, athletics, financial aid, and numerous other student-related programs.
