For 70 years, Pasadena Community Foundation’s grantmaking has helped Pasadena-area nonprofit organizations strengthen their missions and serve more clients. We are excited to kick-off our 2023 Friends & Fellows Here for Good campaign in support of PCF’s local grantmaking, and we invite you to join us a champion of local causes.
Incredible Growth in PCF’s Local Grantmaking
By the end of 2023, PCF will award more than $2 million in grants to over 100 Pasadena-area nonprofits. With generous support from our donors, PCF’s commitment to the community has steadily grown in the Pasadena area:
- PCF’s annual grant programs have doubled between 2019 and 2023: PCF now supports 10 programs in six areas of impact.
- In the last year alone, PCF has recognized that the arts sector needs special attention as it emerges from the struggles of the pandemic; committed additional funding for food security; and continued to partner with the City of Pasadena and several nonprofit agencies in creating affordable housing and shelter.
- PCF continues to support educational equity with a robust suite of scholarship programs, including PCF Scholars, Petersen Scholars, College Women’s Club, the Bonnie Baha Memorial Scholarship, and the Gloria B. Lee Scholarship.
- And finally, 14 area nonprofits received their first-ever PCF grant this year, including the Gamble House Conservancy, Mount Wilson Institute, African American Parent Council, Ride On LA, Soul Force Project, Mount Lowe Chamber Players, and K9 Youth Alliance.
