The Pasadena Tournament of Roses Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2023 grant program.
Eligible applicants are organizations with 501(c)(3) status, as of the submission deadline, February 23, that serves Alhambra, Altadena, Arcadia, La Cañada Flintridge, Monrovia, Pasadena, San Gabriel, San Marino, Sierra Madre, South Pasadena, and Temple City.
As in previous years, grants will be given in the categories of Performing and Visual Arts, Sports and Recreation, and Education (Early Childhood Education, Literacy and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs.
The 2023 grant cycle will be structured as follows – Tier 1: a one-year grant for $35,000, Tier 2: a one-year grant for $15,000 and Tier 3: several one-year grants for up to $10,000. The Foundation will also require applicants to include information on how their program will be delivered.
Since its inception in 1983, the foundation has invested more than $4 million in more than 700 Pasadena-area organizations.
The grant awards in 2022 totaled nearly $200,000, which funded 19 organizations in the San Gabriel Valley.
The grants supported new and ongoing programs benefiting children, teens, adults and seniors. From nonprofits offering animal therapy to special needs children, to organizations providing technical skills to underserved students and dance therapy for seniors diagnosed with Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis.
