Incorporated in 1996, the La Salle Educational Foundation exists exclusively for the benefit of La Salle Prep. Its purpose is to ensure the financial sustainability and permanence of the mission to provide a Catholic college preparatory education to the young, especially the poor.
The Lasallian educational mission is heavily dependent on our ability to build our endowment. A gift to the La Salle Educational Foundation ensures we can continue to aid those of limited financial means, provide a faith-based educational option to interested families and facilitate and foster the growth of our students’ God-given gifts for years to come. Solicitations primarily are focused on endowed funds, planned gifts and scholarship support. Rather than be used for immediate needs, gifts to the Foundation are professionally invested. Earnings on these investments provide a permanent, renewable source of funding. The base of the Foundation continues to grow year after year, with distributions coming from the accrued interest of the funds rather than the corpus. The corpus of the fund will never be depleted.
