10 Reasons Why your Gift Matters


1. Your gift advances the mission of the founding Holy Cross Brothers.

2 . A strong endowment allows us to be accessible to a diverse student body with varied strengths and talents.

3. The Saint Francis endowment is gaining on our closest high school rivals. Help us be #1. 

4. Strength in numbers: banded together, alumni make a powerful statement. 

5. Alumni support is a critical factor when foundations and corporations evaluate whether to make an investment in Saint Francis. 

6. You inspire others to join you as Holy Cross men and women serving others.

7. Each gift, no matter the size, brings us one step closer to making an exceptional, values-based Lancer education a reality for a deserving student. 

8. Returns from the Alumni Class Endowed Scholarship Program contribute to the $3,000,000+ awarded in financial aid annually so we don’t have to turn away a student who has the qualifications and desire but does not have the financial means to attend Saint Francis.

9. Alumni support, alongside contributions from parents, teachers and students, shows the world the strength of our community.

10. You open the door for a deserving student who is filled with gratitude.
