Pasadena Community Foundation Funds

Maria Antonia Niven Endowment

Maria Antonia M. Niven

Maria Antonia M. Niven, known as Tony by her friends, had many blessings in her life. At the end of her life, her children wanted to recognize and honor their mother’s belief in giving back to her community. They created the Maria Antonia M. Niven Endowment Fund at the Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF), an unrestricted fund that will support the grant making programs of the Foundation. After Mrs. Niven passed away in July, memorial contributions from friends and family added to the fund. In her obituary she was quoted to say, “Love is what it’s all about and I had it in abundance.” Through this charitable fund at PCF, Mrs. Niven’s generosity and love of this community will live on in perpetuity.
