Environment & Animal Welfare
Environment and Animal Welfare is one of PCF’s six areas of interest for local grantmaking. PCF’s grantmaking in this area of interest supports parks, gardens, urban open space and trees, and the natural spaces in the surrounding foothills, including the Arroyo Seco. Grantmaking in this area also supports the biodiversity and welfare of both domestic and wildlife animals. This area of interest is made possible by PCF Endowment Builders who are passionate about protecting the Pasadena-area environment and well-being of animals.
Animal Welfare Grant Program – The Animal Welfare Grant Program was created from a bequest from the estate of Doris Gilbert Sloan. It supports organizations that serve the needs of both domestic and wildlife animals. Since beginning in 2021, the program has awarded $55,000 to nonprofit organizations in support of animals.
PCF Capital Grant Program – Over the years, the PCF Capital Grant Program has supported environmental spaces, tree planting, purchase of land for wildlife corridors, and water-wise gardens.
