Pasadena Community Foundation Funds

Rebecca R. Anthony Endowment for Needy and Underprivileged Youth

Students at the Frostig Educational Center, which serves children with learning disabilities.

The Rebecca R. Anthony Endowment supports Pasadena Community Foundation’s grantmaking in the area of youth services, specifically organizations that serve “needy and underprivileged children.” It was Ms. Anthony’s wish that “physically and mentally handicapped children be aided whenever possible.” The Rebecca A. Anthony Endowment is also a Fund for Pasadena, benefiting local organizations working to sustain and uplift our community.

The Power of Endowment
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.
