Pasadena Community Foundation Funds

The Scoble Family Endowment

Fran Norris Scoble

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.
