Friends & Fellows
A gift to Friends & Fellows strengthens PCF’s investment in the Pasadena community
A gift to the Friends & Fellows Campaign supports PCF’s local grantmaking. Gifts facilitate PCF’s ability to fund the creation of housing, a vibrant arts scene, better community health, student enrichment and scholarships, assistance to vulnerable seniors, environmental preservation, and so much more.
In 2021, Friends & Fellows gifts provided critical support for PCF’s grantmaking, including:
- Performing & Visual Arts Recovery Grant Program. Nearly $100,000 in relief funds to 14 local arts organizations severely impacted by the pandemic.
- Equitable Vaccine Rollout. $100,000 in support of community vaccine clinics targeting hard-to-reach, vaccine-hesitant populations.
- 28 PCF Scholars. Now in its third year, this vital scholarship program supports PUSD graduates attending Pasadena City College.
- The debut of Animal Welfare Grants Program, with $25,000 in funding to Pasadena Humane and PAWS/LA.
- PCF’s donor services that maximize the impact of individual philanthropy.
