PCF’s COVID-19 Response
We know that Pasadena area non-profits are all being impacted by COVID-19 in many ways. Some of you have been forced to close temporarily. Others have been asked to step up services or innovate how they are delivered. The immediate hardship is only compounded by the uncertainty regarding how long this state of emergency will continue.
In response to this crisis, PCF has launched a COVID-19 Response Fund and has committed $100,000 to provide local relief through nonprofit organizations as they respond to the impact of the virus and serve our most vulnerable populations. We are in communication with civic leaders and gathering information that will help us assess the most impactful and strategic way to deploy funds.
Please know that we fully appreciate the challenges faced by local organizations. In addition to our response fund, our Board will be re-evaluating other granting priorities and programs for 2020.
Pasadena Community Foundation’s grant programs impact our community by providing direct support to the nonprofits that serve our area. Through a competitive grant-making process, PCF identifies and funds worthy projects and programs that advance our mission of addressing “current needs unmet and future needs unforeseen” in greater Pasadena.
