Pasadena Community Foundation Funds

Jim and Joan Caillouette Endowment for the Arts

For Joan’s 85th birthday, her daughter and son-in-law, Anne & Ken Lawler surprised her by setting up the Jim & Joan Caillouette Endowment for the Arts through the Pasadena Community Foundation. Jim and Joan moved to the Pasadena area in 1954 when Jim began his internship and residency at USC County Hospital. Jim spent his career as a prominent physician affiliated with Huntington Hospital. Joan divided her time between family and community volunteer work. According to Anne Caillouette Lawler, “I thought it would be appropriate to create the endowment for the Arts since this is an area that mom loves. She has been a docent at the Huntington Library ever since I can remember. Pasadena has such great history and traditions. We were pleased to create a fund that both honors my parents’ engagement in Pasadena and supports its arts organizations.”
