What is Love Blue Give Gold (#LBGG)?  

Every year, the St. Edward’s community comes together during Love Blue Give Gold to support their favorite clubs, programs, and other Hilltop causes. It's an exciting two days of fun virtual events, fresh SEU swag, special prizes, and celebrating our Holy Cross values.  

As a crowdfunding campaign, Love Blue Give Gold promotes philanthropy and engagement among SEU alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. Now in its seventh year, #LBGG has become a crucial source of annual support for many campus programs and departments. Your gift strengthens so many beloved facets of the Hilltop experience, from Campus Ministry to RecWell to CAMP — and many more.

The campaign is also used to increase our alumni giving totals, a statistic used by national ranking organizations each year.
