Pasadena Community Foundation Funds

Mitzvah Endowment

Bobby

Thirteen-year-old Bobby saw his Bar Mitzvah as an opportunity to do something good for the community, particularly for after school programs in the Pasadena Unified School District. Friends and family made contributions to the Mitzvah Fund, an endowment established at the Pasadena Community Foundation. The endowment supports organizations providing after school enrichment for disadvantaged children. Since Mitzvah means “good deed” in Hebrew, it seemed only natural to Bobby that gifts given in his honor for his Bar Mitzvah should go into a fund to do good for others.
