Supporting St. Edward's

How else can I support the SEU community this weekend?

You're already giving your time by joining us for Alumni Weekend (thank you!) — but we love gifts of talent and treasure too!


Your gift of talent is a virtue only you can give. Your service as a Hilltop advocate or volunteer sustains and strengthens our Holy Cross values.

Interested in giving talent this weekend? Join our Alumni Thank-a-thon, a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style event where all roads lead to spreading joy and gratitude to our generous alumni donors. We'll provide everything you need to thank alumni by postcard, email, phone, or selfie – whatever adventure suits you best! Drop in anytime and enjoy a cozy atmosphere, a variety of tasty snacks and beverages (both spirited and non-alcoholic), plus a special Hilltop swag item as a token of our appreciation for your service. Whether you pop in for a few minutes or stay with us from start to finish, we're grateful for all you do!


Your gift of treasure is an essential, tangible resource that only you can give. Every donor and dollar is a reflection of our community’s dedication to a transformative Holy Cross education. No matter the size, your donation deepens a pool of support for classroom materials, student services, campus clubs and programs, experiential learning opportunities, and so much more. We hope you'll support Hilltoppers with a gift of any size this weekend!
