Pasadena Community Foundation Funds

Mary Turk Endowment

Mary Turk

Longtime Pasadena resident Marvel B. Kirby passed away in early 2021 at the age of 90. In her bequest to PCF, Marvel chose to honor six friends with close connections to Pasadena who shared her ethos of service and generosity. Each had a named endowment established that will support causes important to them. Mary Turk is one of the honorees.

The Mary Turk Endowment is a PCF Endowment Builder fund and provides unrestricted support for PCF’s local grantmaking programs in the Pasadena area.

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.
