Become A Friend of Patronato

Friends of Patronato are our Friends in Philanthropy

KEY CHANGES beginning in Patronato’s new fiscal year on July 1, 2021:

  • Friends of Patronato giving periods and expiration dates will align with Patronato’s Fiscal Year July 1 – June 30, instead of 12 months from the last gift date to the Annual Fund.
  • Friends will be able to make qualifying Philanthropic Gifts to any Fund of their choosing (Annual Fund, Conservation & Preservation Fund or Endowment Fund).
  • Cumulative Philanthropic gifts received within the prior fiscal year will be used to establish your Friends level for the current fiscal year. (Event Tickets and Merchandise purchases are not included as qualifying philanthropic gifts.)
  • The benefit to receive the Patronato’s Christmas at San Xavier’s iconic die-cut invitation in advance of the general public will rise from $50 to the $100 “Concert Friend” Level. (Please note that those making Friends gifts through the end of the current fiscal year, June 30, 2021 at the $50 level will be included in the Concert Invitation mailing this Fall.)
  • Patronato will be introducing the Kino Society, for those giving cumulative philanthropic gifts of $1,000 or more annually.

The program description below is in effect through June 30, 2021 with new levels and new benefits coming July 1, 2021.
