The Canyon City Foundation Invests Over $1.2 Million into Azusa
The Canyon City Foundation is pleased to announce its recipients for the 2017 funding cycle. The 2017 funding cycle will bring a total of $1,237,602 invested in programs benefiting Azusa residents.
President of the Board, Miles Rosedale stated, “We continue to applaud the work of those groups who are improving the quality of life for a growing Azusa and invite other residents to become engaged in the community.” President Rosedale’s statement is at the heart of the Foundation’s mission. The Foundation was established to not only ensure that the Rosedale residents were an integral part of the Azusa community but to ensure the stabilization of the housing market in Rosedale.
The awards this year are varied but continue to reflect the mission to support social welfare, education and the arts.
The 2017 recipients will bring new programs to Azusa:
- 4CLabs, a new non-profit in the city, will bring two programs: 1) an expository experience of the spoken word, entitled “In My Azusa” and a Leadership Summit for middle and high school girls.
- The YWCA, headquartered in Monrovia, is bringing to the residents of Azusa a Model Legislature and Court which will serve as a foundation for teens interested in the legislative process and prepare them as future leaders for the City. The second program, Y-Adventure Guides, seeks to support and strengthen families in the city.
- Azusa Police Department, in conjunction with Azusa Pacific University, will work together to bring an Online Citizen’s Academy to the citizens of Azusa.
- The Golf Club of Azusa that offers low cost golf lessons to the children of Azusa has been offered funds to support infrastructure development.
The Foundation also awarded support funds to the Azusa Library and Neighborhood Homework House. “These agencies represent some of the best programming that has been funded and can serve as models and guides to other nonprofits,” declared Board member Mark Dickerson.
