Pasadena, CA - The Rose Bowl Aquatics Center (RBAC) is proud to announce the generous 
award of a substantial grant, totaling $75,000 over three years, from the esteemed Pasadena 
Child Health Foundation (PCHF), a fund of the Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF). 
This significant contribution will be instrumental in supporting the Water Safety Program, 
a critical initiative aimed at providing every 3rd-grade student within the Pasadena Unified 
School District (PUSD) - including those with special needs - the invaluable opportunity to 
receive 15 consecutive swim lessons fully funded, thereby eliminating financial

barriers for families. Water safety education is of paramount importance, especially for 
young children, and the RBAC is deeply committed to ensuring that every child, regardless 
of socio-economic background or physical abilities, gains access to life-saving water skills. 

The Water Safety Program directly addresses this need, striving to reduce health disparities 
and create a safer community for all. Jeannine Bogaard, Program Director of Pasadena 
Community Health Foundation, expressed her enthusiasm, stating, "This momentous grant 
further solidifies our unwavering commitment to fostering the health and well-being of children 
throughout the Pasadena area." 

The Water Safety Program goes beyond traditional swim lessons; it encompasses a comprehensive 
water safety curriculum and provides all necessary items, including swimsuits, 
goggles, and towels, to participating students. Over the past 33 years, this impactful program 
has reached an impressive number of students, leaving a lasting positive impact on the local 
community. "We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Pasadena Community Foundation 
for their invaluable support in continuing to make the Water Safety Program a reality," 
said Jimmy Francis, President and Executive Director of the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center. 
"Through our partnership with PCF, we will continue to empower every 3rd-grade student 
in the Pasadena Unified School District with essential water safety skills, an investment that 
will have far-reaching effects on their health and well-being throughout their lives." As a 
leader in aquatic education, programming, and community engagement, the RBAC continually 
strives to enhance the well-being of the Pasadena community. 

The grant from PCF to empower children with water safety and promote health equity represents 
yet another milestone in the partnership between the two organizations in their ongoing 
commitment to making a difference. About Pasadena Community Foundation Founded 
in 1953, the Pasadena Community Foundation is an advocate for local philanthropy and is
