Who We Are
Established in 1953, the Pasadena Community Foundation is a tax-exempt public charity created by and for the people of Pasadena. Our six areas of interest are arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services (with a focus on seniors), and youth.
By definition, a community foundation is a publicly supported philanthropic institution that uniquely serves three public segments: donors, the non-profit sector, and the foundation’s designated community as a whole. Dedicated to growth and posterity, PCF is Pasadena’s permanent endowment for public good.
