Fran created the Scoble Family Endowment in 2012 to support PCF’s grantmaking in the area of Youth & Education. She shared the following in 2018:

“Soon after my retirement from Westridge School, in 2009, I was invited to join the Pasadena Community Foundation Board.  I have a great deal of experience raising funds to support education, and I was eager to have an opportunity to be on the ‘giving’ side of the equation through the Foundation.  My board service has been deeply rewarding.  Along the way, I decided to expand my relationship with the Community Foundation by establishing an endowment fund to support education in Pasadena.”

“I believe in supporting organizations that improve education in Pasadena.  The Scoble Family Endowment Fund enables me to ‘give where I live.’  The city of Pasadena is blessed with a diverse safety net of local organizations that provide important support to the city’s underserved populations.  For all these reasons, and more, I find my work with the Foundation one of my most rewarding volunteer experiences.”

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.
