Celebrating Lasting Gifts

The College thanks its generous supporters at an elegant Big Apple evening

On Sept. 24, Holy Cross hosted a dinner in New York City to thank some extremely generous donors to the College. The attendees were all members of the Fitton, Fenwick and Cornerstone Societies. Holy Cross celebrates the generosity and commitment of these donors whose magnanimous contributions provide vital resources that advance and enhance the life and mission of the College.

Twenty-one people were recognized as new members of the Fitton Society, which celebrates those who have given from $100,000 to $499,999 to the College in their lifetime. Three new members were welcomed into the Fenwick Society (lifetime giving from $500,000 to $999,999). There were two new inductions into the Cornerstone Society. Cornerstone recognizes donors whose lifetime giving to the College has reached or exceeded $1 million.

P. Kevin Condron ’67, Chair of the Board of Trustees, welcomed guests and Rev. John E. Brooks, S.J., ’49, president emeritus, said the invocation. Holy Cross President Rev.
Michael C. McFarland, S.J., presented recognition awards and inducted the newest members of the giving societies.
