In 2015, Clifford Swan Investment Counselors celebrated its 100th anniversary. To mark this milestone, the firm invested in the future of Pasadena by creating a named endowment for education at Pasadena Community Foundation.
“Knowledge is paramount to success — not only in investment management, but also in life. Pasadena Community Foundation shares our values regarding the importance of academic opportunity, and has identified local programs that are making an impact for Pasadena’s youth, said Clifford Swan Chairperson and CEO, Linda Davis Taylor. “Clifford Swan is proud to support this work through our Endowment for Education.”
The Clifford Swan Investment Counselors Endowment for Education was created as part of Pasadena Community Foundation’s “Be 1 in 100” Endowment Builders campaign, and was the Foundation’s first corporate endowment.
The Clifford Swan Investment Counselors Endowment supports Pasadena Community Foundation’s grantmaking in the area of education. This is a Fund for Pasadena, which benefits local organizations working to sustain and uplift our community.
The Power of Endowment
Endowments are the cornerstone of PCF’s mission to build hometown legacies. The corpus of each endowed fund is invested with PCF’s portfolio for long-term growth. Each year, the endowments generate the funds that support PCF’s local grantmaking, which enriches the arts community, protects our environment, provides health care and critical social services, and bolsters public education in Pasadena. Endowments are permanent legacies for our community; these funds will continue to grow and provide philanthropic support forever.
