The Las Patronas Endowment Fund

The Las Patronas Endowment Fund was established in 1990 to provide our members and community supporters an enduring way to support the charitable activities of Las Patronas. The Fund is a stable and permanent reserve that generates income which may be distributed to qualified beneficiaries via a Legacy Society Grant. Members of the Legacy Society have included Las Patronas in their planned giving or made a direct contribution of $10,000 or more.

2019 Legacy Society Grant

Thanks to the 2019 Legacy Society Grant from the Las Patronas Endowment Fund, Monarch School will purchase critically needed shade sails for the outdoor elementary playground area at Monarch School. The shade sails will provide shade cover during recess and other outdoor activities, allowing the more than 100 elementary school students to use the playground year-round.

Monarch School is the only comprehensive K-12 school in the United States developed specifically to serve homeless students. Monarch works to break down the barriers homeless youth face in accessing education and provide them with a safe, stable learning environment where they can heal and learn. Nearly 450 students attend Monarch each year.

Direct Donations to the Endowment

Direct donations may be made to the Fund in honor of or in memory of a loved one or to acknowledge a milestone.
