Endowment funds can be a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding for De La Salle Collegiate students, programs, faculty, and capital needs. Endowment assets are invested and each year, a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose. Any earnings in excess of this distribution are used to build the fund’s market value, giving funds the chance to grow and provide support for its designated purpose in perpetuity.
When you establish an endowment fund at De La Salle Collegiate, endowments can be named for yourself, your family, a friend, favorite teacher, your company; your options are virtually limitless – and most importantly, they provide lasting care for De La Salle students, teachers, programs, and facilities. In addition, you can contribute to the numerous funds that already exist to support various initiatives ranging from tuition assistance and faculty development to program enhancements. Contact the Advancement Department at 586-778-3356 to create a legacy of support for De La Salle.
