Annual Giving

In order to uphold the mission of St. John Baptist De La Salle, we rely on the generosity of our extended community to fund various initiatives, as well as to provide need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships. Gifts to La Salle, whether current or deferred, large or small, help to ensure that the tradition of a Lasallian education can remain strong, and that all qualified students are able to pursue a secondary school education here regardless of their ethnic, religious, or socio-economic backgrounds.

Alumni Annual Fund

Alumni support is the lifeblood of financial aid at La Salle. Each year, over 2,000 alumni from all eras make gifts in order to uphold the Mission of our Founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle. An inclusive financial aid policy ensures that La Salle remains a school of students from varied backgrounds, and support from the greater La Salle community is what provides these opportunities to our next generation of Explorers. A gift to the 2017-18 De La Salle Alumni Annual Fund campaign will ensure that present and future young men fully realize and experience their Lasallian journeys!

GOLD Club

The GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade) Club represents the young supporters of La Salle’s Mission. Established in 2012, countless young alums have made La Salle a priority at a young age and made a gift to the GOLD Club. Gifts to this initiative go towards the Brother James Rieck, FSC ’57 Fund for Service and Spirituality, a fund that supports service trips and spirituality programs for today’s students.

No GOLD Club gift is too big or too small, so even a gift of $5, $10, or a gift in honor of one’s class year (i.e. $20.08 for 2008) helps us increase our young alumni participation rate and displays the solidarity of our alumni community. Please visitwww.lschs.org/gift and choose Rieck Fund to make your 2017-2018 GOLD Club gift today! The Classes of 2008 through 2017 represent this year’s GOLD Club classes.

EITC & OSTC Tax Credits

Make your tax dollars work for La Salle with EITC & OSTC

What are they?

  • The EITC/OSTC programs enable the business you own or work for to redirect state tax dollars to La Salle College High School.
  • Funds received under these programs provide need-based tuition assistance to students at La Salle College High School.

The benefit to you

  • 75% of your contribution to La Salle College High School will go as a tax credit for your business.
  • This increases to 90% if you agree to contribute the same amount for 2 years.

Eligibility

EITC and OSTC tax credits can be used for any of the following tax categories:

  • Corporate Net Income Tax
  • Capital Stock/Foreign Franchise Tax
  • Bank Shares Tax
  • Title Insurance & Trust Company Shares Tax
  • Insurance Premiums Tax
  • Mutual Thrift Institutions Tax
  • Malt Beverage Tax
  • Personal Income Tax

The following business ownership structures can utilize tax credits as pass through for their personal income tax liability:

  • S corporations
  • General Partnerships
  • Limited Partnerships
  • Shareholders, Partners or Members of S Corporations
  • Single member of Limited Liability Company (LLC)

How to Apply

Here are the six simple steps to get an EITC or OSTC Tax Credit

  1. Submit the Electronic Single Application. This one application is used when applying for either EITC or OSTC tax Credits.
  2. Await approval, which could take up to six weeks.
  3. Make donation to LSCHS.
  4. LSCHS sends confirmation receipt to donor company.
  5. Donor company sends receipt back to State.
  6. Final confirmation letter from state is received and attached to company’s tax return.

If your business is filing for its second year of a 2-year commitment, or you have finished your 2-year commitment and wish to reapply to renew, you can file beginning May 15.

If you are a new applicant for the EITC/OSTC programs, please fill out the online application and submit it on July 3. Historically, all new funding is exhausted by the first day of applications, so it is imperative to apply promptly.

What's the difference between the two programs?

Not very much... EITC dollars are used to provide need-based financial assistance to students who simply qualify based on the program's guidelines for household income. OSTC-funded students must also qualify based on the program's guidelines for household income, but must ALSO reside within the boundaries of a failing school district, as defined by the state of Pennsylvania.
