Patron Contributions


babies and teddies


Be a Patron—your dollars go straight to the kids! The Charity Ball’s Patrons are at the core of its successful grant program as the source of the majority of the funds granted annually. Patrons are corporations, individuals, and private and public foundations. Join this list of generous Patrons.

A Patron makes a contribution to children’s charities of $1000 or more, and may also choose to combine that contribution with participation in our other fundraising projects benefiting children:

  • A picture or line acknowledgment in the Rotogravure or an underwriting opportunity
  • A Sponsorship of a Datebook Month, a page honoring a children’s charity, or an underwriting opportunity. On a personal level, one can sponsor a page with a portrait of a grandchild or child.
  • The Chrysanthemum Ball, through reservations to attend the Ball.

If you would like to participate as a Patron please download the Charity Ball Contract, fill it out and mail it to The Charity Ball Association, Attention: VP Community Contributions. P. O. Box 6708, San Antonio, Texas 78209. Questions may be directed to the officer listed on the form. Download Contract
