Supporting an extraordinary collection of
arts and cultural institutions at Balboa Park—
the nation’s largest cultural urban park.
The Prado is Balboa Park’s central promenade, a crown jewel famous for its historical artisan-crafted facades, lush gardens, sparkling pools and flowing fountains. The area is alive with highly prized attractions, exhibitions and performances. The Prado is provides a world-class cultural and educational experience for the millions of locals and visitors from around the world who frequent Balboa Park each year.
Since 1997, Patrons of the Prado has funded over $3.6 million and provided tens of thousands of all-volunteer hours to benefit the distinguished array of arts, science and cultural organizations that occupy the Prado in Balboa Park.
You can help make an impact for a wide range of Balboa Park’s cultural landmarks and the future of our community’s arts, science and culture by supporting Patrons of the Prado. Our annual Masterpiece Gala is one of San Diego’s premier black tie charity fundraising events, and is held in July.
