Pasadena Community Foundation COVID-19 Response

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues into 2021, so too does Pasadena Community Foundation’s relief assistance to small businesses and nonprofit organizations in the Pasadena area.

PCF COVID-19 Response Fund

PCF currently has COVID Response Grants by invitation only. Guidelines are here.

In 2020, the PCF COVID-19 Response Fund was created to activate local philanthropy and provide direct relief to Pasadena-area residents through the work of local nonprofit organizations. The fund was seeded with an initial commitment of $100,000 from PCF, and with help from community members, private foundations, and local businesses, we raised more than $770,000 for this effort. With these donations and funding from PCF’s endowments, we granted more than $2.6 million to local nonprofits between March and December of 2020.

For a recap of PCF’s 2020 COVID-19 relief assistance, read our 2020 Community Matters Fall Newsletter.

Help us continue to provide flexible resources to Pasadena-based organizations and businesses as they continue to respond to the impact of the COVID-19. Donate below to the PCF COVID-19 Response Fund.
