The Boys to Men Fund plays a vital role in helping to continue the mission of a Holy Cross education. Each year, the Boys to Men Fund contributes necessary unrestricted funds to the School's general operating budget to help offset expenses not covered by tuition.
The dollars raised go directly into the budget and are used the same year they are received. Your participation in Annual Giving helps us to raise more money with funding institutions.
Think of the Annual Fund as our "checking account," which means your gift immediately benefits each student and faculty member, supports school programs, and provides for the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of our campuses and facilities. In order to sustain a high standard of academics that we offer students, Holy Cross relies on the continued generosity of parents, alumni, grandparents, and friends. Your donations enhance the educational experience for each student on campus by supporting faculty salaries, professional development, lab and classroom materials, financial aid, athletic programs, library resources, the arts, and technology resources.
The Annual Giving Kick-Off takes place in the Fall. Every family receives a personal letter and remittance envelope from the Annual Giving Chairmen. You can pledge now and pay any time prior to June 30th, the close of the fiscal year. You can even make a recurring Automatic Bank Draft.
