The Hal & Marguerite Hennacy Endowment is a PCF Endowment Builder fund and provides unrestricted support for PCF’s local grantmaking programs in the Pasadena area.

Hal and Marguerite Hennacy met at Stanford University. After they married in the garden of Marguerite’s parents’ home, the couple settled in her hometown, Pasadena. Hal joined his father-in-law in the insurance business. As their family grew to include four children, so did their need for a bigger home. They eventually bought the family home from her parents where Marguerite had lived from the age of 10 years old.

In addition to raising their children, Hal and Marguerite became very active in community life. A highlight of Hal’s commitment includes his 20-year board service to the Convalescent Aid Society. Marguerite was involved in many different organizations through the years, including the Huntington Library, the Scripps Home, the Assistance League, the Girls Club, Rosemary’s Cottage, and Stanford Women’s Club.

As loyal supporters of the Pasadena Community Foundation, in 2016 they decided to become one of PCF’s Endowment Builders. “The endowment creates a lasting legacy that will help so many of the local organizations we have cared about and supported through the years,” says Marguerite.

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. Learn more about creating an endowment at PCF.
