The James N. Gamble Endowment Fund was established in 2005 by friends and family of Jim Gamble as a tribute to Jim’s commitment to local philanthropy. Jim’s father, Cecil Gamble, was a founding advisory board member of the Pasadena Community Foundation, and Jim served on the PCF Board for 10 years from 1978-1987. In April 2005, the PARAID (Pasadena Area Residential Aid) Board selected PCF to continue the legacy that Jim Gamble began through the Foundation’s Donor Advised giving program. The James Gamble Endowment Fund honors Jim’s work as the founder of PARAID and as a Board member of the community foundation. The fund supports local grantmaking programs of PCF.
