    Ways to Give

    Click here to donate to The De La Salle School.

    For more than 17 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.

    At The De La Salle School, most of our students are immigrants or sons of immigrants, nearly all below the poverty line, and most in failing school districts.   We help our students get accepted into and attend Catholic high schools, to be some of the first in their families to graduate from high school, and work with them 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.    

    If you would like to join hundreds of others honoring our Founding Executive Director, Brother Thomas P. Casey, FSC, and make a one-time or recurring gift sponsoring the education of a student for a week, month, or day,  in his name, please CLICK HERE.
