Giving

La Salle Fund

The La Salle Fund plays a crucial role in providing La Salle with the resources necessary to deliver the mission to our students. While tuition only covers 85% of the actual cost of educating a child, the La Salle Fund significantly helps in making up the difference. In other words, your support of the La Salle Fund allows tuition to remain competitive for working families in Rhode Island, while at the same time helps to:

  • Provide more than $900,000 in financial aid
  • Ensure that La Salle recruits and retains the best available faculty
  • Deliver the curriculum with the most modern, up-to-date technology available
  • Support academic, artistic, athletic and extra-curricular initiatives for all students at La Salle
Every gift to the La Salle Fund immediately impacts every student at La Salle Academy, while at the same time ensuring that the future generations will continue to deliver the mission which has sustained us since 1871.

Most of all, the La Salle Fund allows all donors, regardless of gift size, to share our mission and to “touch the minds and hearts of the students entrusted to our care.”

La Salle Fund Appeal

Each year the La Salle Fund provides La Salle Academy with the necessary resources to

  • assist LSA families with the costs of tuition
  • upgrade science and technology labs
  • equip the library with new books and technology
  • fund community outreach programs
  • host reunion class gatherings
  • keep tuition affordable, even as operating costs continue to rise
  • meet everyday and unforeseen operating expenses
  • close the gap between tuition and the actual cost of education
  • provide emergency financial assistance to students presently enrolled and in need
 
These are but a few of the challenges Brother Thomas Gerrow, FSC, President, and his supporting team of dedicated professionals face each year to keep La Salle the outstanding, caring and premier school it is. Whether your preference is to the school’s area of greatest need, financial assistance, student programs or faculty enrichment, the La Salle Fund at La Salle supports it all.
 
Thanks to the great support of alumni and friends, the LSA Fund exceeded its goal last year. Now we need to begin again. Your gift is very important – large or small, it can make a big difference. Please help La Salle meet the challenges of another year and donate a gift to the LSA Fund.
