About the Foundation

Though its fame is worldwide, the Tournament of Roses Association remains committed to its hometown. In 1983, the non-profit Tournament of Roses Foundation was created to receive and manage contributions from  the Association, its members, friends, and supporters, and the general public. In turn, the Foundation annually makes grants to other non-profit organizations in the Pasadena area, funding sports and recreation activities, visual and performing arts, and volunteer motivation and leadership development projects and programs. These broad categories allow the Foundation to contribute to the civic, cultural and educational advancement of its local communities. To date, the Tournament of Roses Foundation has given a total of over $2.4 million to more than 150 organizations.



Financial contributions to the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Foundation are tax-deductible and can be mailed to:
