FAQs - Administration and Funding 

  • How does the Lasallian Foundation determine which projects they will fund?

We work closely with the Provincial or President of the De La Salle Brothers in-country as well as the PARC Regional Councillor to determine the funding priorities. However, the final decisions regarding project funding is made by the Lasallian Foundation Board, who meet twice a year to make their grant allocations.

  • How are programs funded?

Our programs are funded by income we receive from donors (including Lasallian and associated schools), supporters, event sponsorships and other trusts and foundations. We do not receive any government funding.

  • Where does the money go?

Since our inception, Lasallian Foundation Australia has demonstrated careful management of funds in the communities you support. We are an efficient and effective organisation committed to the good stewardship of our limited resources. As part of this commitment we aim to keep our fundraising costs at no more than 15% of our income each year.

Like, all Australian companies, our financial statements are externally audited every year and our annual reports are prepared to internationally acknowledged standards of transparency for not-for-profits. For full details of our full audited financial reports, please read our Annual Report. We also complete annual ACFID compliance assessments, and an Annual Information Statement for the ACNC.

  • Is the Lasallian Foundation a member of Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) and a signatory to its Code of Conduct?

Yes, the Lasallian Foundation has been a full member and an accredited signatory to the Australian Council for International Code of Conduct since 2007/2008. ACFID is an independent national association of Australian non-government organisations (NGOs) working in the field of international aid and development.

The ACFID Code of Conduct defines standards of best practice for international development organisations and represents the active commitment of its signatories to conduct their activities with integrity and accountability. The Code aims to enhance standards throughout the non government develop organisation community to ensure that public confidence is maintained in the way that community contributions to overseas aid are used to reduce poverty through effective and sustainable development.
