Contributors are Investors
As a contributor, you invest in people around the world. While you may not know them personally, we do. We also know that local knowledge united with local talent holds enormous potential for solving perplexing issues. And so we utilize local knowledge to identify strong solutions to regional issues. We engage competent project managers, and we create programs which make a lasting change. Working hard together ensures the investment you have made yields maximum benefits.
Our broad experience in diverse settings enables us to apply good strategies to new operations. As such, we take good ideas from one location and use these experience tested-and-proven ideas to help people in other areas of the world. We share what works and shut down what doesn’t.
We believe your dollars should support your cause . . . not our operations. At La Salle International, there is a simple rule we apply to donations: 100% goes directly to your charitable cause. Every penny. It’s just that simple.
(By the way, lots of people like our business model. In 2017, La Salle International was selected the “Best Philanthropic Organization in Washington DC.“)
An Innovative Business Partnership
If we give all of our income to charitable projects, how do we pay for operations? Our business plan works because the De La Salle Brothers believe they should also contribute. In solidarity with our donors, they underwrite all of the administrative costs for the Foundation. In this way, all — 100% — of your money can go directly to the charitable causes you designate. That’s our way of working with you to help others.
We believe that financial transparency is important for all public non-profits. As such, we welcome you to take a look at our numbers. We’re proud of them.
The links to the right will connect you to the Annual Reports for our operations from 2008-present. Those Annual Reports contain financial information on what we are doing and the projects we are supporting. Our complete IRS Form 990 filings are available at a number of different websites (such as GuideStar) and we welcome your analysis and comment. Should you desire any additional detail, please feel free to call or visit our offices. We’re pleased with our accomplishments achieved with the help of our donors. Our accounting records are always open for inspection.
