UPDATE: 10.23.19 - Thank you to all who gave generously on #BecauseDeLaSalle Day.
Thanks to our wonderful anonymous challenge grant of $15,000 and the 242 donors who made a generous gift. Together we raised over $111,000!
Throughout the day, alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends gave generously BECAUSE they believe in our mission to serve and embrace students with varied academic needs, and diverse social and economic backgrounds. Thank you for investing in De La Salle and our students.
To everyone who participated in #BecauseDeLaSalle Day, we send our heartfelt thanks.
Didn’t get a chance to donate? You can still take part in this effort! We are excited to share another challenge grant made possible by Steve ’83 and Kellie Abreu to celebrate our success! Every gift received before midnight tonight, October 23 will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000. Double your impact with your gift today!
We are excited to kick off our 54th school year! And with another year, the need for support of the De La Salle Annual Fund is more important than ever. Your investment in our school is felt by every student who steps foot on our campus.
So why give to De La Salle? Well, this year we have a simple answer…because. It may sound trite, but it is a simple word with many answers. Over the coming weeks and leading up to Tuesday, October 22, #BecauseDeLaSalle Day, we will explain the why.
Follow and share De La Salle High School on social media – Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and via our email communications…because!
In the meantime, you can help us celebrate the start of the school year with your gift to the Annual Fund now or anytime leading up to #BecauseDeLaSalle Day on October 22.
De La Salle is a wonderful community of parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends which serves its students and mission each school year, Because of You.
Our goal is simple: for 300 donors to make their annual gift to De La Salle on or before #BecauseDeLa Salle Day, and to raise over $100,000 for the Annual Fund. Your philanthropy will allow De La Salle to continue to make the gift of a Catholic, Lasallian education available to our students and fund priorities such as financial aid, faculty development and co-curricular programs.
