THE 1926 SOCIETY
In recognition of the year our school was founded, The 1926 Society challenges our young alumni to show their commitment to The Collegiate with an annual gift of $19.26. Your donation to the Lasallian Fund will support scholarship assistance, technology, building needs and faculty professional development.
Since 1926, young men from metropolitan Detroit have been blessed to receive a Lasallian, Catholic education. Our alumni have made and continue to make significant contributions to our world. Our senior class is a recipient of all that is good and true of a Lasallian, Catholic education. We know that an education such as the one offered at De La Salle Collegiate is only possible thanks to the sacrifices made by the continued generosity of our alumni and friends of the school.
The 1926 Society is a new community being formed by the school. It is a community for current students and alumni who are in their undergraduate years. Simply put, we will ask each senior to make a commitment of supporting the school with a financial contribution of $19.26 this year and for each year our seniors are in college. The $19.26 is a sum of money that is symbolic of our first year of existence and just as importantly our commitment to maintain an exemplary school.
We are very hopeful that our seniors each year will be motivated to step up and begin to take their turn at giving back to their school. All seniors who contribute their $19.26 this semester will receive a custom polo shirt and membership in The 1926 Society.
