The De La Salle Annual Fund is a financial cornerstone to the School's continuing growth and excellence.
Your gift to the Annual Fund ensures that every De La Salle student has an opportunity to fully embrace the Spartan experience and is provided a quality education by preserving and strengthening the breadth of academic and co-curricular programs. Simply said, the Annual Fund helps us deliver on our promise to educate our diverse students into men of faith, scholarship and integrity.
Your participation in the Annual Fund supports three critical School priorities:
Attracts and retains some of the best and the brightest teachers in the Bay Area by supporting a cutting-edge merit based pay system for our teachers. In fact, De La Salle is the only school west of the Mississippi River using the Knowledge and Skill Based Pay (KSBP) program to develop our dedicated faculty and provide all De La Salle students with the best possible academic education.
Enhance student offerings by funding co-curricular programs, such as campus ministry, athletics, music, yearbook, art, theater, clubs, forensics, community service opportunities and more, providing a superior educational environment in and out of our classrooms to prepare students for challenges they will face as they grow into adulthood.
Sustains our financial aid program to ensure a quality Lasallian education is accessible to all deserving young students who desire it.
Additionally, the Annual Fund benefits every family that walks through our doors by bridging the more than $1,700 gap between tuition revenue and the actual cost of educating a student essentially providing a "hidden scholarship" to each and every student. Your partnership in the Annual Fund allows us to stay true to our Lasallian mission to serve varied academic needs and diverse socio-economic backgrounds by remaining affordable to as many families as possible.
De La Salle relies on the generosity of donors-parents, alumni, alumni parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends to create a strong Annual Fund that sustains, enriches and completes our dynamic and uncommon learning environment. All current parents are asked to make a four year pledge to the Annual Fund during freshman orientation, investing in their son’s education and future.
