The Lasallian Christian Brothers Foundation (LCBF) raises funds for scholarships for underserved students to attend San Francisco New Orleans District Lasallian schools and for the care and support of the Brothers who joyfully and faithfully educate and serve them. Your gifts make our mission possible.
Working to safeguard the future of present school communities and provide the means for expanding who and where we serve, the LCBF supports two of the most important resources in the Lasallian educational mission—our students and our Brothers. Your annual donations, contributions, and endowment gifts to the LCBF, which distributes funds to both goals as needed, ensure that our schools will serve needy students and deserving Brothers, both today and in the future. If you wish, you may ask LCBF to direct your gift where you discern the most need: student scholarships or care of the Brothers.
Student Scholarships: LCBF directs funds to the Lasallian Education Fund (LEF) and provides
- Scholarships for underserved students
- Programs designed to increase the number of students receiving scholarship funds in the San Francisco New Orleans District
Together, we provide tuition assistance to students whose families live at or below the poverty level and cannot pay the full cost of tuition. 1,400 students, or twenty percent of the student population in all twelve San Francisco New Orleans District middle and secondary schools, currently qualify for the highest levels of financial support; 96 percent of these scholarship students attend college. Our goal is to increase the number of needy students that we are able to assist. Donors help to subsidize the schools and students most in need.
Care of the Brothers: LCBF directs funds to the Christian Brothers Charitable Trust (CBCT) and supports
- Vocation recruitment plans and programs for postulants & novices
- Education and leadership development programs for young Brothers
- Retirement and health care of senior Brothers
Together, we fund the care and well-being of Brothers through its support of vocation development, education, training, and lifelong needs. The legacy of a Lasallian education requires the presence of Christian Brothers working alongside lay Lasallian educators. Donors help to subsidize housing, health care, education, and pastoral care for Brothers who willingly and humbly educate and serve those in need.
