Patrons of the Arts

Membership in Patrons of the Arts is open to those who enjoy and wish to support Visual Arts, Instrumental Music, Choral Music, Show Choir, and Theater at Saint Viator. With your membership donation of $50 or more, you will become a distinctive member receiving a window decal and exclusive communications regarding all fine arts events and volunteer opportunities. 

Each year, thanks to the efforts of Patrons of the Arts volunteers, we are able to fundraise through concessions and novelty sales, membership, and our annual Spring Fling event.
