Class-Based Fundraising

Fr. Brooks

Matthew Cavanaugh ’20 with
Rev. John E. Brooks, S.J. ’49

From strengthening the bond that alumni have with each other and with the College, volunteers play an essential role in the ongoing success of the Holy Cross Fund. Since Matt Cavanaugh '20 founded the Holy Cross Fund in 1947, connections with classmates  have sustained the long history of alumni contributing to keep Holy Cross one of the top liberal arts institutions. Each alumni class has a system of Class Chairs, Correspondents and Agents who engage classmates in supporting the College annually.

Class Agents

Each class has between 10-20 Class Agents who are responsible for contacting a list of classmates each year. Agents encourage their classmates to make annual gifts, and keep the College updated with their contact information updates. Download the Class Agent Kit »

Reunion Gift Committees 

Reunion gift efforts always aim to inspire high levels of class participation and to secure leadership contributions in support of Holy Cross’ highest priorities. Led by a gift chair or co-chairs, reunion gift committees are responsible for personally encouraging classmates to support the class gift.

This year brings renewed energy to these efforts as class reunion gifts will count toward the Become More campaign. From the fifth reunion to the Purple Knights, each reunion gift effort builds community and forms the backbone of the Holy Cross Fund, often raising more than 30 percent of the Holy Cross Fund total.
