Legacy and donations
Lassalle-Haus tries to keep the prices low in order to enable as many people as possible to attend a course and also offers help, guidance and refuge to numerous people. As a non-profit institution, the house cannot be self-supporting, but is also dependent on larger donations. Perhaps you have already considered supporting Lassalle-Haus with a donation in the form of a legacy. Your donations are exempt from gift and inheritance taxes. We would like to express our sincere thanks!

Patrons Association
As a patron, you express your special commitment to our house and regularly support our work. You will be invited to the annual summer event for patrons and to the gatherings held twice a year geared at discussing current issues.
