The doors to the Pasadena Showcase House of Design have closed; but, the volunteers of Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts (PSHA) are busier than ever preparing for the next phase of their year. Applications for gifts or grants are now available on their website at www.PasadenaShowcase.org.
The deadline for submitting an application is October 10, 2014.
Last May, $685,000 was awarded to sixty local non-profit organizations and schools by PSHA. The proceeds from the 2013 Showcase House enabled the organization to continue its legacy of funding music programs throughout the community.
Eileen Reilly, a resident of La Cañada Flintridge, who has been a member of PSHA for twelve years, will be chairing the Gifts & Grants Committee. Ms. Reilly, a retired attorney, is excited about chairing this committee and overseeing the process. She understands the critical difference these grants make to programs that struggle financially and how important these programs are to the community. Each year, PSHA awards gifts and grants to a diverse list of non-profit organizations to support their efforts in the community.
Concerts are underwritten to insure that the joy of live music is available to a broad range of audiences. Support of choirs, musical theater, school marching bands, dance programs, opera, jazz bands, and orchestras enriches the community and provides opportunities for a variety of groups, from students to seniors, to learn, enjoy and grow from their experiences in these programs.
Additionally, PSHA has a longstanding history of supporting the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its community outreach programs. Since 1948, PSHA has donated nearly $20 million to outstanding organizations that enrich the lives of countless people and support the arts throughout the community.
