PCF News

The Board and staff of the Pasadena Community Foundation are deeply saddened by the death of our Board member, Michael Schneickert.  Michael joined the Board in 2011 and served with great commitment and passion.  He loved Pasadena and the work of the Foundation and believed strongly in building endowments to serve the future needs of the community.  His family has asked that memorial donations be sent to PCF for the Schneickert-Otamura Endowment.
