Special Announcement

We are pleased to announce that the Pasadena Child Health Foundation (PCHF) has contracted the Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF) to provide administrative services beginning January 1, 2015. PCHF and PCF share a commitment to serving the local communities of Pasadena, Altadena, and Sierra Madre through grants to non-profit agencies. We know that this partnership will strengthen our organization and collaboration with other philanthropists in the area, which will enable us to better serve our grantees and their programs.

The Pasadena Child Health Foundation will retain its status as an independent private foundation wherein governance, fiduciary oversight, and granting decisions remain with the board. PCHF’s mission also will not change: we continue to be dedicated to the financial support to reduce disparities that adversely impact the health of children residing in the greater Pasadena area.

As in prior years, we will send notifications about our grant cycle and www.pchf.org will also have up-to-date information.  Granting processes will remain the same, but your point of contact for correspondence, application processes and grants management will change. Please contact:
