Each year, PFO partners with twelve local nonprofits through our HeARTbeat Program. Our teens learn about the incredible impact these organizations have in our community, and then work to bring their mission and vision to life through the arts.

Check out our 2017-2018 HeARTbeat honorees below!

2017-2018 Non Profit Honorees

Through the PFO Present Program, we model and engage our teens in active philanthropy by giving of our treasure as an organization. Teens research local nonprofits and pitch their mission to other teens who share the same birthday month. From these pitches, the teens select 12 nonprofits to receive a financial gift from PFO.
