Endowment Builders

Join PCF’s Family of Endowment Builders — local philanthropists committed to shaping a better future for the greater Pasadena community.

PCF Endowment Builders are people who love our community and who have chosen to invest in the future with a named endowment. Their gifts provide flexibility for the PCF’s local grantmaking and the long-term sustainability that ensures the Foundation can meet not only the current needs of our community, but the needs of tomorrow as well.

PCF offers two ways to structure your endowment:

  • Restricted — Allows you to designate your support to one or more of PCF’s six areas of interest: Arts & Culture, Community & Economic Development, Environment & Animal Welfare, Health & Safety, Human Services, and Youth & Education
  • Unrestricted —  Supports PCF’s grantmaking at the Foundation’s discretion
