Dr. Martin

"The extraordinary participation rate of the Faculty and Staff Campaign is a point of tremendous pride for me, and I hope that it is for you, too. Partners, alumni and donors are often surprised to learn from me that approximately 65 to 75 percent of our faculty and staff donate to the university each year. This rate is far higher than those of our peer institutions. It also illustrates our community's deep commitment to students and the Holy Cross mission. Thank you for helping to strengthen our special campus community."

— President George E. Martin, PhD

Your Impact

  • Each year, approximately 65 percent of faculty and staff give generously through the Faculty and Staff Campaign. 
  • Your contributions open doors of opportunity for student exploration and success, both on campus and in the wider community.

Give by Credit Card

Give by Payroll Deduction

  • Alumni who work for the university make their gift count twice – for participation, that is. Your contribution is included in the alumni participation figures that the university submits for the very important US News and World Report rankings, and it also counts toward the participation totals for the Faculty and Staff Campaign. This is an easy two-fer and a great way to demonstrate the importance of alumni participation in annual giving.

Thanks to the many individuals and departments who participated in the campaign thus far!
