The Las Patronas Endowment Fund
The Las Patronas Endowment Fund was established in 1990
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 that may be distributed to qualified beneficiaries via a Legacy Society Grant.
Planned Giving & the Legacy Society
Thanks to Las Patronas, SAY San Diego will purchase laptops to expand their free and confidential professional tax preparation services to low and moderate-income individuals and families.
Last year SAY San Diego members completed 1,792 tax returns to put working families’ money back into their own pockets so they don’t have to turn to other agencies and programs for support. This grant is SAYs first partnership with Las Patronas and could potentially double their impact in the community by giving them the mobility to reach a broader geographic area. SAY San Diego is a private, non-profit organization serving San Diego since 1971.
Direct Donations to the Endowment
In addition to support received through planned giving, direct donations may also be made to the Fund in honor of or in memory of a loved one or in thanksgiving to acknowledge a milestone. Supporters who make a direct donation of $10,000 or more are recognized as a Las Patronas Legacy Society Member. You can mail a check to: Lauren Weiss, Investment Committee Chair, P.O. Box 1888, La Jolla, CA 92038-1888 or donate online.
