De La Salle High School invites you to advance the Lasallian mission by making a philanthropic investment in our school. Gifts of all sizes truly make a difference in the lives of our students. Since 1949, De La Salle has prepared more than 10,000 students for college, career, and life in a global community.
“I believe in its mission, academic standards and the need it meets given De La Salle is the only Catholic co-educational, diverse high school in our community.”
Paul Flower ’63
Ways to Give
Annual Giving is a wonderful opportunity for you to make an annual gift to De La Salle. Your annual gift supports many facets of our organization: from facilities improvements, to maintaining a safe campus environment, to hiring quality faculty and staff. Your gift offers De La Salle the flexibility to undertake critical new initiatives, all of which go toward improving the high school experience we offer to our students. We have two annual giving campaigns that take place each year. To learn more about each of our campaigns, please click on the images below.
More than 15,000 companies and subsidiaries will match tax-deductible charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees, and employees’ spouses – which can double (or triple) the value of your gift! To find out if your employer (or your spouse’s employer) is one of the 15,000 companies and subsidiaries that matches gifts, please click HERE. If you do not find your employer, please contact your employee benefits department for more information about its matching gift program.
We welcome gifts of in-kind materials or services. In-kind donations aid our project costs for school events and infrastructure.
Establishing an endowment fund for De La Salle provides permanent income to support our programs and operations. De La Salle of New Orleans, Inc. hold and invests the endowed assets, providing responsible and professional fund management, through Charles Schwab & Co. Contact the Office of Advancement and Alumni Relations for additional information about stock transfers and brokerage information.
Making a planned gift is an excellent way to show your support and appreciation for De La Salle and its mission, while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. Charitable gifts help you meet your current philanthropic goals and extend your generosity well into the future. A planned gift can also protect assets, provide for your family, and offer a guaranteed income. Creating a charitable bequest gift will offer a significant impact to De La Salle.
Consider making a charitable gift to De La Salle by utilizing your IRA. At age 70.5 years, you become eligible to withdraw from your IRA at a maximum of $100K annually. Gifting a portion of those funds will benefit De La Salle tremendously and will offer tax benefits for you.
Supporting one of our funded scholarships offers opportunities for high-achieving students from a variety of economic backgrounds to attend De La Salle. We also strive to offer merit-based scholarships to students that meet certain criteria based on academic excellence.
Thank you in advance for your support of our Lasallian mission to develop our Cavaliers spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially.
