Friends and Fellows Fund Celebrates 20 Years

Dear friends,

pcf-20thThis year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Pasadena Community Foundation’s Friends & Fellows Annual Campaign. As two of the “Founding Fellows” back in 1996, we are pleased to co-chair this year’s fundraising effort. Our Friends & Fellows support PCF through gifts for operations and gifts to build our endowment funds. Annual support is a critical element in making our grant programs possible. With your help, PCF can continue to improve and enrich the lives of the people in our community.

We hope that you will join us and support PCF with a year-end gift.
