Funding For Projects Exceeds $7.15 Million

Funding For Projects Exceeds $7.15 Million

Over $7.15 million has been raised to date allowing construction of the Glaser Student Center to begin in the fall.


Pledges totaling over $7.15 million to our facilities fundraising effort - For The Explorers, For The Future, For La Salle - have been secured, accomplishing 95% of our goal. The generosity of our alumni, parents, and that of many others allows us to forge ahead with the second of our three capital projects. We will break ground on the Glaser Student Center in early October. The initial construction will entail the excavation of the ground behind the auditorium, preparing it to become the new outdoor student recreational area. Construction of the atrium extension to the cafeteria will follow. Interior work will commence around Easter,

Having secured the funding for the Glaser Student Center, our final attention turns to the Flannery Field project – including a new turf field, track, lighting, and increased stadium seating. With approximately $350,000 more to raise, we have launched a series of Alumni Class Appeals and, most importantly, ones directed to our track and field, football, and lacrosse alumni. Since this project is still funding dependent, we have not set a definitive construction date.

We are excited to be nearing the finish line for these projects and we are always happy to welcome new donors. If you would like to lend your support with a gift or by helping organize the efforts of your class, please contact:
