Grant Description
Grants of up to $25,000 to California nonprofits and agencies in eligible regions for activities to improve children's health. Funding priorities include promoting healthy weight and early childhood development, and enhancing family and community connections. Eligible programs impact children and youth residing or attending school in the Greater Pasadena area, defined as the PUSD attendance area, including the communities of Pasadena, Altadena, Sierra Madre, and some unincorporated parts of Los Angeles County.

Pasadena Child Health Foundation provides funding to reduce disparities that adversely impact the health of children residing in the Pasadena Unified School District attendance area. PCHF invests in prevention and early intervention strategies and activities that incorporate the principles of collaboration, leveraging existing resources, and expanding capabilities to improve the health and well-being of Pasadena area children in three priority areas: Promoting Healthy Early Childhood Development, Strengthening Family and Community Connections, and Healthy Bodies and Sound Minds. For more information on funding priorities, see the Full Grant Text RFP link.

  • Have clear and measurable impact on the population the program is serving.
