Signs of philanthropy appear all over the Hilltop — in our science labs, classrooms, the library, residence halls, and even in the verdant lawns that cradle our Sorin Oak. Less tangibly, giving appears in each renewed generation of hardworking, talented students and professors. All are crucial to delivering a Holy Cross education that shapes hearts and minds.
Many students who embark on their Hilltop journey and learn to live our Holy Cross values are only able to do so thanks to support from donors like you. Because the upcoming year holds a lot of unknowns — especially for our more financially vulnerable students — we are asking for donations to three specific areas: financial aid, the student emergency fund (HOOF), and the area of greatest need. Of course, gifts to any area of the university make a huge difference for Hilltoppers today and beyond.
Your generosity reflects our deep connection and the many opportunities we have to uphold one another. Thank you for showing our students that their success is worth your investment. We are deeply grateful for your support.
