Types of Donations

  • Memorial Gifts
    A gift in memory of a loved one, favorite professor, student or friend is a thoughtful and meaningful way to recognize someone's life and accomplishments. This can be done by establishing a memorial lecture, commemorative event or activity.

    Some examples: Teodocia Sarao-Osteria Memorial Lecture Series, Nadina Barzaga-Capayas Scholarship Endowment Fund

  • Planned Gifts
    Planned giving provides you with the options and opportunities to include support of DLSU-D in your over-all financial program. Planned gifts are generally gifts or commitments/pledges made in the present which will benefit DLSU-D in a future date or upon completion of the gift. Other planned gifts may include donations of property (securities and real estate) or gifts of tangible personal property.

    Some examples: Magar Professorial Chair, Usis Professorial Chair, Panlilio Collection at the Museo De La Salle, Dr. Jaime Laya Collection

  • Property/Real Estate
    A residence, farm, ancestral home, or other real estate may be given to DLSU-D. A gift of real estate can make the full value of your property available and offer a variety of economic advantages, while leaving a lasting legacy at DLSU-D. The University will carefully evaluate each potential gift of land to make sure it will advance the University's mission.

    Some examples: Valeros Property in Ilocos Sur, Br. Andrew’s Property in Charbel, Dasmariňas

    Gifts of Services
    DLSU-D supporters often donate gifts such as the right to use property or pledge to provide a service. These gifts provide significant support for the University. To determine DLSU-D’s interest in the service you would like to provide, e-mail us at development@dlsud.edu.ph

  • Class Gifts
    Class gift campaigns are an opportunity to celebrate what your Lasallian education has meant to you. Alumni can celebrate their years at DLSU-D by giving something back to the University and to future generations of Lasallians/Patriots. Class gift campaigns encourage alumni to increase their annual giving to the University or make their first annual gift in recognition of a significant reunion.

    As part of the overall campaign, classes also undertake special class gift projects that benefit the entire University community. These projects range from student scholarships and faculty support to physical improvements to the campus.

    For more information please contact the Alumni Relations and Placement Office at arpo@dlsud.edu.ph

  • Endowments
    An endowment is a gift held in perpetuity and invested in a manner that protects the principal from inflation. The investment income provides a stable funding source for such purposes as scholarships, professorships, lecture series, and research centers.

    DLSU-D has received and managed several endowment gifts. Collectively, these gifts make up DLSU-D Endowment Fund. For investment purposes, the individual endowment gifts are pooled into a single fund. Pooling endowment gifts allows DLSU-D to achieve greater diversity in its investments, lower its investment costs, and attain the maximum return on donors' gifts.

    Some examples: Dr. Carlos Magno Professorial Chair, Mai Mai Lai Ping Scholarship Endowment Fund, Alfred Xerez-Burgos Scholarship Endowment Fund
