A New Relationship with Pasadena Child Health Foundation

Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF) is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Pasadena Child Health Foundation (PCHF), which took effect January 1, 2015. PCF and PCHF share a commitment to serving the local communities of Pasadena, Altadena, and Sierra Madre through grants to non-profit agencies. Over the past 10 years, PCHF has granted more than $2.7 million dollars to local agencies.

The Pasadena Child Health Foundation will retain its status as an independent private foundation, and its mission also will not change: to financially support local organizations and programs that aim to reduce disparities that adversely impact the health of children residing in the greater Pasadena area. Grants are made in four focus areas: Healthy Infant Development, Family and Community Connections, Healthy Weight, and Access to Health Benefits.
