Investment Performance

The Pasadena Community Foundation has investment objectives that focus on long-term growth.

  • For endowed funds, our goal is to grow the fund, after annual distributions, at a rate that keeps pace with inflation.  Thus the grant making power of the endowments are protected.
  • For long-term investment funds, our track record of investment performance helps to maximize the amount of charitable distributions.

“We first formed a foundation committee to explore ideas for raising additional funds to do more in our local community. After exploring different options, a partnership with PCF seemed to be an efficient way to go.”
