Founded in 1921, the College Women’s Club of Pasadena is truly an historic organization. The Club’s Scholarship Foundation allocates financial aid to approximately 10 full-time students each year who need financial help completing their college or graduate education. Over its lifetime, CWCPSF has granted out $1,210,000 to 608 women. The Club has 80 current members who raise funds though events, a boutique, and donations.

In 2016, the Club made the decision to transfer the scholarship foundation’s $1.2 million endowment to the Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF). PCF manages the endowment and Club members raise funds and select scholarship recipients. This partnership ensures the perpetuity of the Club’s outreach and mission. The endowment currently stands at nearly $2 million.

In May 2021, College Women’s Club of Pasadena awarded $46,500 to the following 12 women for the 2021-22 school year:
