The Pasadena Foundation was formed in 1953 to address “current needs unmet and future needs unforeseen” in Pasadena. Now organized as the Pasadena Community Foundation, PCF continues to meet this original directive by partnering with local individuals, families, and organizations to provide enduring support for its mission.
The Pasadena Community Foundation improves and enriches the lives of people in the greater Pasadena area through commitments to:
Provide grants and services to strengthen community-based organizations
Promote and participate in community partnerships
Enable donors to meet their philanthropic goals
Serve as a leader and catalyst to build charitable funds emphasizing permanent endowments to fund grants to local organizations
