You make things possible at La Salle Institute.
Supporting the Annual Fund is an opportunity to invest in La Salle Institute. Your gift helps our faculty, staff, moderators and coaches stay at the forefront of our boys’ education. We are able to anticipate and respond to the dynamically complex educational, cultural, and economic environment around us. This capacity to respond within complex challenges is built through your profound support.
Because the Annual Fund is unrestricted, we are able to allocate resources to everything from financial aid, technology equipment, course development, Campus Ministry, extracurricular activities, repairs in the school, and so much more.
Is it really important to support the Annual Fund?
Families are continually drawn to La Salle Institute for a variety of reasons: rigorous academic programs, a faculty and staff who care deeply for our students, the exceptional JROTC program, acting on our Lasallian values, and a sense of pride and belonging that quietly resonates across our campus. While proud, we must continuously improve.
We need to hire the best teachers, provide hallmarking programs like Robotics, a Mini-Nano-technology Lab, Engineering Club, sustain award-winning drill teams and jazz band ensembles, and become the most scholarly leader development school in the region. Tuition covers approximately 87% of what we need to educate our students. To optimize success for our Cadets, we need added resources.
An Annual Fund gift at an enhanced level is a game-changer at La Salle Institute.
How can I make a gift?
We make it easy by offering an opportunity to invest in La Salle Institute. Gifts can be made in the form of a pledge, paid in installments throughout the year, or as a single gift paid in full. Payments may be made in checks, cash or gifts of stock. Gifting stock is also a great way to support the school and can be an effective tax saving strategy for you and your family. Please contact the Office of Advancement at 518.283.2500 for details.
We also accept gifts online through NYCharities.org.
May I designate my gift?
Yes! Annual Fund gifts may be designated to greatest need, current year scholarships or to a specific academic or co-curricular program. The actual gift will go to support the designated area, but cannot support a specific purpose. If you wish to support a specific capital improvement project or a specific scholarship, please see the restricted gifts section.
How can I increase the impact of my support through a matching gift?
A great way to double or even triple your gift! Many companies and foundations will match the value of charitable gifts made by employees, their spouses, board members and retirees. To check if your company or foundation has a matching gift program, check the La Salle Institute database by clicking here.
