Show Your Love. Give Purple!

Holy Cross to launch 24-hour fundraising challenge
February 8th, 2017 by 

UPDATE: Feb. 15  – 12:00 a.m.

6,111 donors!

What a day! Thank you to all who showed your love for the College of the Holy Cross. Because of your passion, the “I Love HC” challenge was a resounding and record–breaking success! Your generosity directly benefits our students, supporting financial aid, academic and faculty resources, faith and service initiatives, and athletics.

Today we surpassed the record for all liberal arts colleges for the number of donors to a 24-hour giving challenge, held by Colgate since 2013.

You are outstanding. Let’s shout it from the rooftops! Please accept our profound thanks for an incredible demonstration of love!

More to follow.


UPDATE: Feb. 14  – 10:40 p.m.

​We have just set the all-time record for donors (5,684) to a 24-hour giving challenge, originally set by Colgate University in 2013.


UPDATE: Feb. 14  – 8:30 p.m.

We have reached 5,000 donors and we have 3 hours left to break records! A group of anonymous alumni will give Holy Cross an additional $200,000 to see how high we can go.  Today, our community demonstrated why it was recently ranked No. 12 among colleges and universities in the U.S. in Princeton Review’s new list, “Best Alumni Network.” Show your love today. We have until midnight (EST).


UPDATE: Feb. 14  – 6:00 p.m.

Over the last 16 hours, you have propelled us beyond our goal of 4,000 donors. With 8 hours to go, let’s get to 5,000. If you have not yet shown your love, and made a gift, do so before midnight. http://bit.ly/ILoveHC

UPDATE: Feb. 14  – 5:30 p.m.

4000 donors!


UPDATE: Feb. 14  – 3:03 p.m.

We just surpassed 3,000 donors.  Nine hours remain to show your love.  http://gvcmp.us/pb47e7


UPDATE: Feb. 14  – 12:00 p.m.

With our 2,000 donor, we are halfway there to 4,000! 12 hours remain.  Show your love today: http://gvcmp.us/pb47e7


UPDATE: Feb. 14  – 9:38 a.m.

We have reached 1,000 donors toward our goal of 4,000. Show your love today: http://gvcmp.us/pb47e7

 


On Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day, Holy Cross will embark on a 24-hour fundraising challenge. If 4,000 alumni, parents, students, and members of the campus community make a gift on Valentine’s Day, a small group of donors will contribute $1 million to the effort. Last year’s “Give Purple” challenge broke fundraising records and garnered the College widespread national attention.

This year’s challenge is centered around the question, “What do you love about Holy Cross?” All members of the College community are invited to take part in what will certainly be an exciting day, as classes challenge one another.

Gifts to the challenge will impact all aspects of life on campus, from supporting financial aid to enhancing academic and co-curricular programming. A gift of any size will make a tangible difference in the lives of students today — and will extend to those whose lives their dedication and compassion will touch tomorrow.
