The Randolph and Judith Wilson Endowment provides provides unrestricted support for PCF’s local grantmaking programs in the Pasadena area.

Randy and Judy Wilson are long-time Pasadena residents. Randy grew up in South Pasadena, attended Stanford and Penn universities, and returned to Pasadena in the 1970s, when he became a 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, a role she held 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 nonprofit boards, including the Pasadena Museum of History, Mothers’ Club Family Learning Center (now known as Families Forward Learning Center), and the West Pasadena Residents Association.

With an ‘insider’s’ knowledge of the Foundation, Judy was impressed with the diligence PCF’s board and the way in which it reviews grant applications and participates in site visits.  As a result, Judy and Randy opted for an unrestricted endowment with the Foundation, which provides flexible 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.
