Philanthropy Spotlight: Las Patronas

Since its inception in 1946, Las Patronas has donated more than $12 million to more than 1,000 charitable institutions in San Diego. The organization is committed to providing financial assistance to nonprofit organizations in San Diego County that provide valuable community services in the areas of health, education, social services, and cultural arts.

The funds distributed to these organizations are generated through year-long fundraising efforts and the annual presentation of the Jewel Ball, one of San Diego’s most enduring social, cultural and philanthropic traditions. All funds raised by Las Patronas stay in San Diego County.

By giving to Las Patronas, a company or individual diversifies its philanthropic giving by at once reaching seniors, youth, the military, the homeless and the disabled, as well as supporting medical, environmental, research and cultural organizations in a broad geographical range within San Diego County.
