Friends & Fellows Fund

Side by side with our donors, Pasadena Community Foundation strengthens Pasadena-area nonprofits with grant funding.

Each year, Pasadena area nonprofit organizations budget carefully to meet the needs of their clients. Sometimes their budgets fall short, and that’s where Pasadena Community Foundation steps in. Our funding allows nonprofit organizations to focus on what they do best – ensuring healthy, vibrant lives for our community’s residents. Your Here for Good gift to the Friends & Fellows Fund makes this possible.

By the end of 2023, PCF will have awarded over $2 million to more than 100 local nonprofits and $200,000 in scholarships throughout the greater Pasadena area.

Here are just three examples of PCF’s grantmaking impact this year:
