Like many small colleges, Our Lady of Holy Cross College is tuition driven. This means that the majority of its yearly operational budget comes from student tuition. However, student tuition does not, and never will, equal the actual cost of educating a student. Our Lady of Holy Cross College this year supports 60% of all students in the form of some type of financial aid or scholarship. Our Annual Fund is needed to bridge the gap between what the student pays for school and what it actually costs the College to provide them that high-quality education. Technology, teacher salaries, tuition support and much more benefit from the Annual Fund!
The great news about the Annual Fund is that anyone can contribute. We encourage alumni, students and friends of the College to make a donation. With an increase of 2% of alumni donor participation, OLHCC will reach its goal of 20% alumni participation, which makes OLHCC eligible to boost its income through competitive grants and funding opportunities.
