Friends & Fellows

Friends & Fellows are the donors who sustain our mission to serve the people of Pasadena.

Friends & Fellows gifts are the perfect way to support your local community and the issues that impact its residents. Whether you are passionate about children’s health or homelessness prevention, historic preservation or arts education, senior citizens or preschoolers, a Friends & Fellows gift supports the local philanthropy that distinguishes our community.

In 2021, gifts to Friends & Fellows will support PCF’s ongoing COVID-19 relief funding, protecting Pasadena’s most vulnerable citizens, including seniors, low-income individuals, and families with young children who are experiencing economic hardship due to school closings and job loss.

Ray and Charmayne Ealy, Friends & Fellows Campaign Co-Chairs

Friends & Fellows gifts provide critical support for PCF’s grant making, including:

  •  $2.5 million in 2020 in response to COVID-19;
  • Endowment Builders that fund organizations and causes in perpetuity;
  • PCF Scholars, a supportive housing initiative, the City of Pasadena’s emergency arts grants;
  • Donor services and operating support that maximize the impact of individual philanthropy.

We ask you to join us as a Friend or Fellow and help realize the Foundation’s mission to improve and enrich the lives of people in Pasadena. Thank you for your support!
