Human Services is one of PCF’s six areas of interest for local grantmaking. PCF’s grantmaking in this area of interest supports organizations addressing food insecurity, homelessness, and special populations, including seniors and those with learning differences and developmental or intellectual disabilities. This area of interest is made possible by PCF Endowment Builders who are passionate about uplifting the lives of our neighbors.
Senior Grants — PCF Senior Grant Program is an annual grant program launched in 2007 in support of “frail elderly” who face physical, mental, or economic struggles.
Vista Nova — The Vista Nova Renaissance Endowment funds the Vista Nova Grant Program, which supports organizations in the greater Pasadena area and the eastern LA County that assist visually impaired populations with unique challenges; specifically, those whose eyesight cannot be improved with corrective glasses or medical procedures.
