Men of La Salle

Welcome to the Men of La Salle Webpage!

The Men of LaSalle - 70 plus years and still rolling!

The Men of La Salle are all fathers and guardians of La Salle students. Our mission is to provide tuition for students who have lost their primary wage earner. Although it is difficult to believe, we are called upon 6-8 times every year to serve this mission.

The Men of La Salle’s social mission is to strengthen school and family bonds through shared experiences that foster camaraderie, father/son fellowship and community service. I hope you share my belief that there is a social gap between the generations, one which we must provide the guidance which will allow our boys to prevail as gentlemen.

During the school year, we meet on the first Thursday of each month to socialize. We have a light meal, catch up with old friends and make new ones, stay informed about our sons’ school days through faculty speakers and plan our future activities.

We Sponsor several Father-Son social events!

Golf Outing, Sixers and Phillies games and our most beloved Father-Son Banquet

The Men of LaSalle coordinate Service Events!

  • Freshmen Branchout Day,
  • Poor Man’s Supper
  • Monthly visits to Face to Face in Germantown for meal preparation and service

For more than seventy years, the Men of La Salle have made the generous and unbroken commitment that no student will ever have to leave La Salle due to the death of a primary wage earning parent. Originally a “pass-the-hat” undertaking, those funds are now primarily generated from our joint efforts with the Mothers’ Club at the Auction which takes place each November.

It is most interesting to note that the majority of our Alumni contributions come from those who received some form of aid while they were here attending La Salle College High School. I call this is the Beneficiary Effect. The Beneficiary Effect is the long term results of your good deeds.

There are many reason to love La Salle it is a special collection of people and traditions. We believe the Men of La Salle epitomizes this love of community and commitment.
