US (CA): Pasadena Tournament of Roses Foundation unveils 2024 Grant Awards

The Pasadena Tournament of Roses Foundation has announced its 2024 grant awards, totaling nearly $200,000, to 20 organizations in the San Gabriel Valley. These grants will support new and ongoing programs benefiting children, teens, adults and seniors.

The Foundation's 2023 Golf Classic presented by J.P. Morgan Private Bank was a resounding success, raising more than $100,000. This year, we are proud to welcome seven new organizations to receive grant support that have not previously been awarded a grant from the Tournament of Roses Foundation.

In 1983, the Foundation was created to receive and manage contributions from the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association, its members, donors, friends of the Foundation, sponsors and public supporters. The Association and the Tournament of Roses Foundation are focused on positively impacting the Pasadena community through charitable giving, volunteerism and community involvement.

Since its inception, the Foundation has funded more than $5.7 million in charitable contributions on behalf of the Tournament of Roses Association, to invest in people through sustainable programs. This year, one $35,000 grant and one $20,000 grant were awarded, in addition to 18 other community initiatives that received grants of up to $10,000.

  • $35,000 grant – Assistance League of Pasadena, founded in 1936, remains steadfast in its commitment to uplifting the local community. Through Operation School Bell, essential resources like clothing, books and school supplies are provided to students from low-income families in Pasadena. With this grant, the league strengthens its efforts, ensuring every child has the tools to succeed.
  • $20,000 grant – Arlington Garden in Pasadena is the only free climate-appropriate, public habitat garden that offers learning, inspiration and enjoyment for all ages in Los Angeles County. Arlington Garden endeavors to engage, educate, and demonstrate how a climate-appropriate garden can be beautiful and practical while incorporating the goals of water conservation and environmental sustainability. The grant will allow for the creation, printing and distribution of a new nature journal highlighting mindfulness, observation, wellness and creative inquiry based on ninth-grade high school standards on ecosystems, watersheds and biodiversity.

The Foundation grants are divided into three categories: Visual and Performing Arts, Sports and Recreation, and Education (Early Childhood Learning, STEAM/STEM, Literacy.) These broad categories allow the Foundation to contribute to our local communities' civic, cultural and educational advancement.
