Holy Cross Educational Trust was established in the year 2000 having the registration No: ……………………….. Rev. Dn. Benny John Chirayil was the settler. The founder chairman is H.E. Thomas Mar Themotheos, Metropolitan. Other members of the Trust are:
The first and so far the only project of the Trust is the Holy Cross College, Puttady. Though the first registered office of the Trust was St. Joseph’s Cathedral, Sastri Road Kottayam, the office was shifted to the College later. The Holy Cross Educational Trust started the pioneering management college in the Idukki District at Puttady after obtaining sanction from the Govt. of Kerala and M.G University Kottayam. The effort of the trust in establishing the college at Puttady has bore good fruits because of the ethical functioning of the college. The college never accepted donations from students and deposits from the teaching and non-teaching staff. Sometimes the college is under terrible pressure due to the paucity of funds. Even then neither the Trust no the College has indulged in any sort of money-spinning activities.
The reputation of the institution as an ethically managed one is due to the fact that the Holy Cross Educational Trust never permitted any unhealthy activities in the name of education. We are proud of the fact that the College and Trust have a clear image before the public and Government. Dr. K.P. Thomas, Co-Founder member of the Trust passed away on 20th February 2020. We record the great service rendered by Dr. K.P. Thomas as a member of the Trust and records our condolences to the family members.
