Pasadena Community Foundation Funds

Randolph and Judith Wilson Endowment

Judy & Randy Wilson

Randy and Judy Wilson are both long-time Pasadena residents.  They love the culture, the people, and being part of this vibrant city.

Randy grew up in South Pasadena, went to school at Stanford and Penn, and returned to Pasadena in the 1970’s where he is an active real estate developer. Judy had a long career in local government, including the Director of Sanitation for the City of Los Angeles and Executive Officer at LA METRO.  She arrived in Pasadena in 1980 as Pasadena’s Assistant City Manager where she served for 10 years.  Judy retired in 2016 as the Director of Development at the Pasadena Community Foundation.

Both Randy and Judy have been actively engaged in the community, chairing a number of non-profit boards including the Pasadena Museum of History, Mothers’ Club, and the West Pasadena Residents Association.

With an ‘insider’s’ knowledge of the Foundation, Judy was impressed with the diligence of the Pasadena Community Foundation’s Board as they review grant applications and participate on site visits.  As a result, Judy and Randy opted for an Unrestricted Endowment with the Foundation, citing the confidence they have in the community foundation to meet the needs of the Pasadena community now and in the future.
