    Ways to Give

    Click here to donate to The De La Salle School.

    For close to 20 years, The De La Salle School has provided economically disadvantaged young men with a Christian and human education in the Lasallian tradition.  We are a Catholic middle school, grades 5 through 8, and we are part of the San Miguel/Nativity Coalition of schools, a nationwide model.

    Your support helps our faculty and administration provide a truly transformative experience to our students, all of whom come from economically disadvantaged circumstances with many living in failing school districts.  Your support helps our students get accepted into and attend Catholic high schools, many the first in their families to graduate from high school, and go on to achieve a college education.  We cannot do this without your help.

    We are non-tuition drive, and more than 90% of our budget is from individual, corporate and foundation donations. 

    We are a IRS recognized 501c3 tax exempt charity, and your donation is fully tax deductible.  Please join with us in our mission: please make a donation to  support our scholarship fund. 

    To make a donation by check, please write the check out to The De La Salle School, and send it to the attention of William Gault, Executive Director, The De La Salle School, 87 Pine Street, Freeport, NY 11520.
