Program Success


The Canyon City Foundation was established in 2004 as part of the planning of the Rosedale Master Planned Community. Monrovia Nursery provided an initial grant of $2.5 million to establish the Canyon City Foundation which is intended to increase the philanthropic activity within the City of Azusa and the new Rosedale Community. As you review the report, you will find that the Canyon City Foundation has indeed made significant contributions to the philanthropic activities in the City of Azusa. Also, a provision in the Development Agreement with the City of Azusa, approved by the voters, was a required contribution of 0.5% of the sale price of all resales in Rosedale to replenish the capital of the Canyon City Foundation. The provision ensures that the Foundation will be able to benefit the City and its residents for generations to come.

The Canyon City Foundation disperses grants to 501 (c) (3) eligible organizations from the interest earned on its capital.

In this report, you will find a list of the grant recipients for the past decade. You will note that they all have the required eligibility as designated by the Internal Revenue Service.

We are pleased to share this decade in review with you and invite you to seek opportunities to engage in the community through one of the many programs that the Foundation has supported.

President of the Board
