Pasadena Community Foundation Funds

Maria Antonia Niven Endowment

Maria Antonia “Tony” 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, an unrestricted fund that will support PCF’s local grantmaking programs.

After Mrs. Niven passed away in 2006, 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.

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.
