Pasadena Community Foundation Funds

Pasadena Assistance Fund

The Pasadena Assistance Fund seeks to help Pasadena residents “Build Better Lives” through grants to local human services agencies serving Pasadena. Distributions from the fund supplement the community development block grants (CDBG). Through a partnership with the City, the Fund is held and invested by the Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF). Jennifer DeVoll, President & CEO of the Pasadena Community Foundation, notes that the fund “is right in our sweet spot. PCF builds hometown legacies – permanent funds to support the critical services offered by nonprofit organizations within our community. We are thrilled to be working with the City to help them grow the fund through prudent investment and heightened visibility.”

Since its inception in 1992, the City’s Human Services and Recreation Department, and now the Housing Department, has been responsible for the programmatic management of the Pasadena Assistance Fund (formerly the Human Services Endowment Fund) which has distributed more than $2,787,696 in grants to Pasadena area nonprofits.
