Contributors are Investors

As a contributor, you are investing in our work of helping people around the world.

At La Salle International, we appreciate the faith and confidence you invest in us to carry out this work. Over 300 years of experience have enabled our operations to hone themselves into effective and competent solutions. 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.

Efficient Operations

At La Salle International, there is a 95% rule we apply to donations. Of the money contributed to the Foundation, 95% must go directly to the charitable causes; only five percent may be retained for administrative support. This keeps our administrative operations lean and our project revenue large.

An Innovative Business Plan

With other charities using considerably more of received funds for operational expenses, how can our business plan succeed if it limits us to only 5 percent? It works because the De La Salle Brothers believe they should also contribute. Sure, they are the ones who struggle to keep operations solvent and they work for very little compensation. But in addition to this, they collectively help to underwrite the administrative costs of the Foundation. In this way, almost all - 95% - of your money can go directly to the charitable causes you designate. That's their way of supporting you in helping others.

Financial Transparency

We believe that financial transparency is important in public non-profits. As such, we welcome you to take a look at our numbers.  We're proud of them.

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.
