Heart of Hoban Society

Since its founding in 1953, Hoban has provided an exceptional educational experience for its students. Hoban educates the heart as well as the mind. Students learn the values, attitudes and behaviors necessary to make a real difference in the world.

Through its planned giving program, the Heart of Hoban Society, Hoban provides numerous opportunities for alumni, parents, friends and benefactors to invest in Hoban's future and in the future of the young men and women who seek a quality educational experience in the Holy Cross tradition.

Planned giving is truly just “gift planning” and is “tax wise” philanthropy. It is the result of informed and careful thinking about what to give, when to give and how to give. Our goal is to enable those who support Hoban to maximize the level of their giving. Donors also receive the personal benefits of making a legacy gift by utilizing simple planned giving strategies including bequests, gifts of cash or appreciated securities and insurance policies.

If you would like to talk about planned giving strategies, or if you have questions about making a planned gift, email or call 330.773.8620.
