Grants of up to $25,000 to Greater Pasadena area, California nonprofit organizations and government agencies to improve and support the health of local children and youth. Funding priorities include healthy weight, early childhood development, and family and community belonging. The Greater Pasadena area is defined as the PUSD attendance area, which includes the communities of Pasadena, Altadena, Sierra Madre, and some unincorporated parts of Los Angeles County. Proposals are invited that will impact children and youth living or attending school in the Greater Pasadena area.
PCHF encourages prevention-oriented proposals addressing one or more of the following priorities:
- Promoting healthy early childhood development: Optimizing physical, cognitive, and emotional development during pregnancy and throughout the first five years of life.
- Strengthening family and community connections: Enhancing protective factors and social connections that serve as a critical platform for healthy behaviors and development.
- Healthy weight: Helping children maintain a healthy weight, combat obesity, and boost self-esteem.
These approaches are encouraged as they have been demonstrated to reduce the burden of illness, promote health equity through the reduction of health disparities, reduce costs, and contribute to the overall health and quality of life for children, families, and communities.
