Founders Board

The initial members of the Founders Board include Bishop Tom Daly, Frank Noonan, Bernie Orsi, and Joe Syufy. They all hail from the greater San Francisco Bay Area and have ties to local Lasallian high schools. At least three additional Founders Board members, representing the schools and Brothers in Arizona, Southern California, Oregon, and Washington, will be added in the future. Brother Donald Johanson, FSC, serves as the Interim Board Chair.

Officers include:

Brother Donald Johanson, FSC*

Most Reverend Bishop Thomas Daly, DD

Pamela Gleeson

Brother Mark Murphy*
Vice Chair of Operations; only appointed position on Founders Board

Bernie Orsi
Vice Chair of Annual Giving

The Founders Board recognizes the responsibility to financially support the poorest students in our schools, retired Brothers who have already served in Lasallian institutions, and those Brothers who work in district schools with our Lasallian Partners today. Founders Board members are lifelong supporters of the Lasallian mission, dedicated to our development goals through their personal commitments and their willingness to invite others to join. All members give significant donations from their own means and encourage a network of colleagues to be involved as well. The board meets four times a year at Mont La Salle in Napa, CA, to formulate policy, determine strategy, and set and implement goals for annual and long-term development needs.
