endowment and planned giving


The Las Patronas Endowment Funds were created to extend the impact of gifts made to Las Patronas to future generations. It also provides a wonderful opportunity for you to support or continue to honor a friend or family member. There are both irrevocable and unrestricted funds to select for contributions.

The Legacy

Starting in the Fall 2016 grant cycle, income derived from the endowment will fund a minor beneficiary of up to $5000. Contributions to the Las Patronas Endowment, will create income to fund more beneficiaries each year in the years to come.
