The William J. & Claire W. Bogaard Endowment supports Pasadena Community Foundation’s grantmaking in the areas of environmental and historic preservation. This is a Fund for Pasadena, which benefits local organizations working to sustain and uplift our community. PCF extends its deep gratitude to Bill and Claire Bogaard for their many years of service to the Pasadena community, and support for the Foundation’s work. Bill currently serves on the PCF Board of Directors.
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. Learn more about creating an endowment at PCF.
