Welcome to Gift Planning

Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for Holy Cross and its mission, while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. With smart planning, you may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Just as important, you will know that you have made a meaningful contribution to Holy Cross.

We recommend that you familiarize yourself with various gift options by exploring How to Give and What to Give. Then compare gift options and/or calculate how these gifts could work for you. Please contact the Office of Gift Planning for assistance to discuss your personal situation and desire to support Holy Cross. We can be reached by phone at 508-793-3481 or
