1850 Annual Fund Campaign

La Salle Institute, Troy, has been educating boys in the Lasallian Tradition since 1850.  We welcome students from 38 school districts and more than a dozen students from China.  For 167 years, our boys have become major contributors in all sectors; some are CEOs, others are leaders in health care, scientific and technical industries, several are in law enforcement to include the FBI, a few have answered Christ’s call to serve in an ordained vocation. Deep within these highly successful Cadets is the common thread of valuing truth, honor and duty.  Our students live these three words and the vision they support each day as they walk the halls of the building.  Truth, honor and duty are the same foundations upon which academic excellence, morality and leadership are built and allow our graduates to make a difference.  Through your generous support and unwavering belief in our Cadets and faculty, we continue to prosper at La Salle Institute.  Please help us reach our potential by contributing some amount that coincides with our founding year of 1850.


What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund is a major resource used to support tuition assistance, academic and extracurricular programs at La Salle Institute.  Last year, 66% of our students received tuition assistance from the Annual Fund!  Tuition assistance provides the bridge between the actual cost of attendance and what families can afford to pay. Your generous support allows us to admit students who might be denied enrollment based on low family income or hardship due to crises.  Your gift has a direct impact on our students’ academic success and formation via truth, honor and duty.  Your financial support keeps our emerging scholars at the cutting edge…for example…by adding a course in Nanotechnology in the 2016 - 2017 school year. Thank you for your continued support of our Cadets!

Why Your Participation is Essential!

Your kind gift shouts “YOU MATTER” to our Cadets and Faculty.  The confidence they gain when hearing of your support brings energy and hope to our classrooms, sports, campus ministry activities, band performances, JROTC functions, and Leadership seminars.  Your support sends a resounding message that you believe in our collaboratively built vision:  Lasallian inspired, Christ-like champions who conquer challenges with courage, pursue scholarship, and become empowered global leaders.  Your participation encourages others to invest in our Cadets and the charism that animates La Salle Institute.  We all share in the investment of students, faculty, and La Salle Institute’s proud heritage.
