Patronato Board Members

So many in our community and around the country are committed to the restoration, maintenance and preservation of Mission San Xavier del Bac, including those who have served on Patronato’s Board of Directors. The nonprofit organization was founded in 1978, and with the guidance and support of Board members, combined with generous gifts from other individuals and organizations, Patronato has raised nearly $11 million dollars to date (3/15) for our “Arizona jewel” and national treasure.

The current board members are highlighted below, along with members of our Founders Circle and our Associate members.
