All our Contributors are Investors in Positive Change

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 that make a lasting change that helps our cause. 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.

Efficient Philanthropy

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. For the 7th year in a row, La Salle International was selected for the Business Hall of Fame; in 2021, the Foundation was honored as the “Best Philanthropic Organization in Washington DC.“)

An Innovative Business Partnership

If La Salle International gives all of our income to charitable projects, how does it 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 partnering with you to help others.

Financial Transparency

We believe that financial transparency is important for all public nonprofits. 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 to the 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 comments.

Should you desire any additional details, 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.
