Monte Vista is one of San Antonio's jewels. It takes many supporters like you to help us protect and preserve this splendid historic district. Today we are reaching out to you in the hope that you will join us by becoming a sponsor of the Monte Vista Fall Home Tour. This biennial event is our major source of funds to continue the ongoing work of the Association and the many heritage-supporting initiatives we undertake each year.
These Home Tour events help fund our neighborhood preservation efforts, our annual events such as our 4th of July Parade and Picnic, our quarterly newsletter, and the Donald E. Everett Scholarship given to the University of Texas School of Architecture for distribution to worthy architecture students. The Association is working to gather and archive the history of residents who lived here before us, and we work with the City of San Antonio's Office of Historic Preservation to protect our architectural heritage.
Your tax-deductible donation will promote a greater understanding of the importance of historic preservation, and appreciation for one of San Antonio's finest and best-preserved historic districts. Thank you for your consideration.
3rd Thursdays are held March thru May and September thru December. The events are open to MVHA members and neighbors looking to join MVHA. Hosted in a different home each month and sometimes at a local business or school, it is a great chance to meet MVHA residents and enjoy a glass of wine and light snack.
This tax deductible sponsorship will receive recognition for all events (excluding Home Tour) and special projects during the calendar year of the sponsorship. You may donate any amount from $200 up for recognition at the Annual Sponsorship level.

In 2016, the MVHA Board of Directors established a permanent MVHA Founders Fund to honor the Founders of the Monte Vista Historical Association as well as the many members who have worked diligently over the last forty plus years to preserve the Monte Vista Historic District as well as furthering education on all things historical about Monte Vista; her homes and their owners. The annual income from this fund will be used for specific initiatives that further the MVHA mission of preservation and education. Memorial donations may be made directly to this fund.
This annual event starts with a parade and of course ends with a very patriotic party at the Landa Gardens complete with hot dogs, lemonade, a pie contest and lots of prizes. Help make this a special event by clicking Donate Now! and be an underwriter of the event that celebrates Independence Day.
