Each year, PFO partners with local nonprofits through our Nonprofit Honoree 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 2019-2020 Nonprofit honorees below!

2019-2020 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.
