Foundation / Corporation
Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts (PSHA)
Grants to Los Angeles County, California nonprofit organizations and schools for music education, music concerts and series, scholarships, and music therapy programming. Funding is available for both one-time and ongoing activities.
Proposals will be evaluated based upon evidence of quality, accountability, and soundness of design. Organizations must demonstrate sound fiscal and management capacity.
Generally speaking, smaller grants are made to support programs that work closely with community-based and direct-service organizations; more substantial grants are made to support larger organizations and services such as symphonic associations.
PSHA will consider support for media-based programs/events only if the content and use of media address or, in some way, advance one or more of PSHA's specific objectives. Proposals involving media will be evaluated using the same criteria and standards applied to all other proposals.
