The Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF) was founded in 1953 with the goal to address “current needs unmet and future needs unforeseen.”  To meet these needs, the community foundation works with local families and groups to build hometown legacies that provide enduring support for its mission “to improve and enrich the lives of people in the greater Pasadena area.”

Join the Fellows and Support Your Community!

The Pasadena area has earned its reputation as a highly philanthropic community, so the Pasadena Community Foundation established the Fellows Fund in 1994 to harness this generous spirit. Since then, Fellows have contributed over $2 million to support the grant-making programs of PCF. The dollars we give to Pasadena area nonprofits each year come from people like you who call the greater Pasadena area home.
