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.

Planned Giving

Planning your future? How do you want to leave your legacy? Consider including De La Salle Collegiate in your estate and financial plans.

Students at Mass during the day at De La Salle.

Education is a legacy and The Collegiate is a vital part of that legacy. Since 1926, thousands of committed alumni, parents, trustees, and friends have supported De La Salle to advance the school's mission and provide for its future. Some have made gifts during their lifetime; others have chosen to provide for De La Salle through a planned gift.

Planned giving can involve making charitable gifts through your estate plans and may result in favorable financial benefits for you or your estate. De La Salle welcomes gifts made through different planned giving arrangements. 

These plans can:

  • Pay you or your family income
  • Entitle you to charitable income and/or gift or estate tax deductions
  • Enable you to leave a legacy for De La Salle and support the mission of the Lasallian school

The most common type of planned gift is a bequest in your will or trust. De La Salle accepts many types of planned gifts and assets including cash, securities, real estate, retirement plans, life insurance policies, and others.

If you have decided to include De La Salle Collegiate in your estate plans, please let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity, make sure the purpose of your gift is understood by the school, and include you as a member of the De La Salle Collegiate Legacy Society.

For more information about leaving your legacy, please contact Linda Fraschetti in De La Salle's Advancement Office at 586-541-6250

Stock Transfers

Stock can be donated to De La Salle Collegiate to fulfill commitments to the Lasallian Fund, a major gift, creating/increasing endowed scholarships, or to fund annual scholarships.

Students work on math problems during class.

To ensure we track the transfer properly and credit your record for this gift, please inform the Advancement Office, 586-778-3356. Please include your name, the name of the stock, and date of the transfer, the number of shares, and the approximate value of the gift. Also, please include the fund to which this gift should be credited (e.g. The Annual Fund, Scholarship Endowment, Tuition Assistance, etc.).

Instruct your broker to contact De La Salle Collegiate’s broker to execute the transfer:
Matt Bucher
Merrill Lynch
2600 West Big Beaver Road, Suite 500
Troy, MI  48084
Phone: 248.655.4025
Fax: 248 636-4690
Account Number: 6ZT-04185
DTC Number: 8862

The value of the gift is determined by multiplying the number of shares by the average price for the stock on the day it enters De La Salle’s account. The average is determined by using the high and low prices on that day as published in the Wall Street Journal.

Please note that there is often a delay between requesting a stock transfer with your broker and the actual transfer taking place. Please plan accordingly if you wish to make a gift by a certain deadline such as the end of the year. The gift date is the day that De La Salle receives the information about the transfer.

Brothers Table

“Some of our boys don’t have enough to eat,” President Emeritus Brother Robert Carnaghi said. “It’s important to know that these situations have always been present at De La Salle, and they continue today. The Brothers are personally committed to making sure these boys have something to eat during the school day."
