According to Jennifer DeVoll, CEO of PCF, “We have grown our collection of endowments for Pasadena and that means more money flows to local non-profits in the form of grants and scholarships.  The bulk of our competitive grant making activity takes place in the spring although some additional grants will go out through the end of the year. Through our donor advised and family foundation funds we will also distribute grants all over the country. Last year PCF granted $5.6 million overall.”

Pasadena Community Foundation’s core mission is to Build Hometown Legacies, permanent endowments that support work right here in the community. PCF manages about 350 charitable funds and $80 million in charitable assets.
