Class of 1986 Breaks Two Records

Five women in the Class of 1986 made Holy Cross history this year in honor of their 25th Reunion. For the first time ever, the top five gifts to the class gift effort, all six-figure gifts, were made by women. The 1986 Class leaders and volunteers also report a record number of donors this year: 402. The only other classes to have broken the 400 donor-mark are 2008, 2009 and 2010.
