CORNELIA L. EATON ENDOWMENT FOR ASSISTANCE TO THE ELDERLY

The Cornelia L. Eaton Endowment for Assistance to the Elderly was established at Pasadena Community Foundation in 1995. Eaton lived in a modest house in Pasadena in the path of what is now the 210 freeway. At her death in 1995, she left her entire estate to the Pasadena Community Foundation, a bequest valued at $816,225. She restricted the funds to be used to support charitable organizations that serve seniors in the City of Pasadena. PCF created a permanently endowed fund to ensure that her intentions were honored in perpetuity: the Cornelia L. Eaton Endowment for Assistance to the Elderly.

As of 2024, the Eaton Endowment has awarded $1,158,000 in grants to agencies serving seniors. Cornelia Eaton’s legacy has exceeded her bequest of $816,000. Her fund is valued at $2.1 million.
