Award to a Los Angeles County, California nonprofit organization working to impact youth through education in the visual arts. While consideration will be given to proposals from throughout the County, preference will be given to organizations based in Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley.

The genesis of this award was a desire to broaden PAA’s impact on arts education by honoring an organization and its educational programs for youth. This award complements the Foundation’s grants program by directing funds specifically to nonprofit organizations that impact youth through contemporary art.

Unlike a grant, this award is not given for a specific purpose but is to be used as the organization sees fit to continue the educational efforts for which it is being honored.

Awards will be based on the organization’s quality of programs, level of outreach, inclusion of contemporary art, impact on target audience, and sustainability of organization. Programs should be geared toward youth K-12 and older, but not college or graduate students.
