Our History

Young at Heart; Experienced in Service

La Salle International is a relatively new foundation, having been chartered only in 2009. But that doesn't mean we're new to service. The vast array of programs and services which La Salle International supports have been operated by the De La Salle Christian Brothers for decades . . . even centuries. We've learned a lot during our more than 300 years of service and we've honed our skills to be effective and efficient at what we do.

USA Headquarters in Washington, DC

Headquartered at the Hecker Center in lovely northeast Washington, DC, our offices are located adjacent to the US Catholic Conference of Bishop's (USCCB) offices and proximate to Catholic University of America in the Brookline area of the city.

A Public Charity

Because we are a "public charity," individuals, corporations, agencies and foundations in the United States who might otherwise have restrictions prohibiting donations to faith based charities are free to make tax deferred charitable contributions to La Salle International. As a 501(c)3 organization we largely assist institutions staffed by the De La Salle Brothers and their Lasallian partners. We also assist other educational, health and humanitarian endeavors.

A Global Mission

Our support has extended around the world and today we are helping individuals and improving lives in many developing corners of the world. Increasingly, people have appreciated the work which we are doing to promote youth at-risk programs and have offered financial support of these vital human services. We welcome your support and look forward to continued opportunities to link caring donors with needy individuals in our programs around the world.
