Whom does PSHA fund?
PSHA makes grants only to organizations classified as tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and local schools and charitable organizations. PSHA does not make grants to individuals or to for-profit organizations. Consideration will only be given to grants for programs administered and conducted in Los Angeles County.
What activities doesn't PSHA fund?
Each program has specific types of activities that it does not fund, and you should check the listing of Ineligible Requests on the Grant Application Instructions page. In addition to not awarding grants to individuals, PSHA does not fund unsolicited construction requests or debt reduction.
What is the size of the grants awarded?
Grant size varies from program to program. 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.

How long does it take to get a grant from PSHA?
Review of Grant applications will be complete by March. Awards are distributed at the Pasadena Showcase House of Design during the month-long event, held mid-April through mid-May each year. Successful applicants are invited and encouraged to attend the grant distribution reception; however, if unavailable, the grant distribution will be mailed.
May an organization submit more than one application at a time?
You may submit as many applications as you wish, although organizations are encouraged to prioritize their own needs before contacting PSHA. Each request will be reviewed independently, using the guidelines of the application, and evaluated on its own merits.
When may an organization submit a new proposal?
Organizations may submit new proposals each year. An organization currently receiving funding from PSHA is generally expected to fulfill all of the terms and reporting requirements of its current grant before it can submit a proposal for a new grant. On rare occasions, PSHA may permit an organization to submit a new proposal before the current grant has expired to ensure continuity of funding.
May an organization receive more than one grant?
It could occur that different departments, schools or independent projects within an organization have more than one current grant from PSHA.
What are PSHA's criteria for funding television and other media projects?
PSHA will consider support for media-based projects only if the content and use of media address or in some way advance a specific objective of one or more of PSHA's program areas. Proposals involving media will be evaluated by the same criteria and standards applied to all other proposals.
What are PSHA’s policies regarding solicitation, invitations and gifts?
No member of the Gifts and Grants committee may accept any gift or gratuity from a grant applicant, other than tickets to an event directly sponsored by PSHA. Correspondence relating to the grant should be directed to the Grants Chairman. All other correspondence should be directed to the President.
