    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.    

    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.

  • Annual Christmas Luncheon - Virtual - 9 December 2020 - PIX11 Journalist Magee Hickey

    The COVID-19 pandemic has caused us to change our plans for our traditional Christmas Luncheon.   This year’s luncheon will be a hybrid event, with a virtual component.

    Our Luncheon Committee Members will graciously be hosting “Mini Home Luncheons” gathering small groups of friends and supporters on Wednesday, 9 December for those who are comfortable gathering together.  Participants can also join us individually from the comfort of their home.  Each “Mini Home Luncheon” and individual will join us “live” online for a short presentation from PIX 11 reporter and journalist Magee Hickey, and other members of The De La Salle School community.  We will virtually come together to celebrate the accomplishments of our students and alumni as they continue their education in intellect and faith.  Instructions and a link to join the celebration will be sent to all participants in advance of the event.

    To join us as a sponsor, hostess or individual guest, please use this online form.
