The Pasadena Independent Schools Foundation (PISF) is an innovative youth philanthropic education program that provides middle and high school aged students with a hands-on opportunity to operate a private foundation. The program is the ultimate embodiment of the "teach a man to fish - and feed him for life" philosophy.

Student participants, with the assistance of faculty, parent and philanthropic advisors, will grant $96,000 to local charitable organizations. In the process, students strengthen their connections with the community as well as each other during the first year. In the second year of the program, students make return visits to the charities to learn how the funds were spent and how it benefited the organization.

Please join OBA for this event to be held at Maranatha High School's football field: 169 South St. John Avenue in Pasadena. Stop by our booth to chat OBA staff, volunteers and board members.
