Ways To Give
The generosity of our school community – Board members, administrators, teachers, staff, alumni, parents, grandparents and friends – have allowed Holy Cross to grow and prosper for the past five decades. There are many ways you can contribute to our school.
Holy Cross has a long history of generous donors who give their time, talents and services. We are always looking for people to assist in multiple Advancement Office activities. Holy Cross hosts numerous events, both on and off campus, throughout the year. The success of our annual events would not be possible without the participation of our school community.
A gift to the Annual Fund, our annual giving campaign, provides the school with unrestricted operating income that can be directed towards areas of greatest need.
Memorial and Honorary Gifts (Scholarships/Endowment)
Your memorial gift can help to perpetuate the values that guided a loved one’s life. Gifts may honor a person during his or her lifetime or commemorate a significant event.
Through matching gift programs, many companies offer employees a benefit that promotes charitable giving in support of education.

By taking the extra time to apply for a matching gift from your company you could double or even triple the value of your contribution!
Gift of Stock
A great way to show your support for Holy Cross is through the transfer of stock. It is beneficial to transfer stock directly to Holy Cross because you avoid a capital gains tax on any increased value and can also receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock.
A gift of real estate or personal property has similar benefits as a stock donation. You get capital gains savings as well as a charitable deduction for the full market value of the gifted property,
Planned gift, deferred gift, estate gift – different names for a way to manage your affairs, plan for the future, and make a gift to Holy Cross High School. These are the most common types of planned gifts.
- Income Producing Plans: Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable Remainder Trusts.
- Charitable Lead Trusts: Support Holy Cross now and still leave assets to your heirs.
- Bequests: Make a gift by will.
- Life Insurance: Use a life insurance policy to make a substantial gift.
