PATRONS could not do its job without the generous contribution of our members and the surrounding community. All throughout the school year PATRONS carries out several events, like the Holiday Silent Auction, the Ranch Revue, and the IB Banquet to mention a few, that generate the funds for us to operate. The contributions collected during the year are either money or physical items, and all of these donations go directly toward supporting RBV's Honors Program.

Here are a few other ways in which you can donate to PATRONS

  • Write a check to Rancho PAT and mail it to: PO Box 3162, Vista, CA 92085. Contributions are tax deductible.

  • We accept credit card payments through Stripe. Please click Donate button below.

  • Your purchases thru AmazonSmile generate a contribution of 0.5% by Amazon to PATRONS (See details below).

  • Volunteer at any of the Fundraisers. We would like to meet you in person.

  • Most importantly, consider being a Proctor during April/May. We provide Proctor Training. We are happy to answer any questions. Please contact us. You can read more about Proctoring in our FAQ page.
