Since 1975 PCF has invested over $4.5 million in our community. Our grantmaking funds nonprofits working collaboratively to serve youth, seniors and families.
Youth at-risk Collaboration
PCF’s vision and leadership has catalyzed local nonprofit organizations to better coordinate programs serving at-risk youth from preschool through adolescence. From 2014-2017 PCF has made 13 grants totaling $100,000 to 10 organizations to:
- Renovate the Cavanagh Center, a central place for youth to participate in educational and recreational activities
- Recruit, train, and match dozens of mentors with at-risk youth
- Promote literacy by making free books available to over 1,000 kids
- Promote good nutrition and practical sustainability skills
ASSISTANCE FOR LOW-INCOME SENIORS
In 2015 PCF helped combat the isolation experienced by low-income seniors by providing a $5,000 grant to PEP Housing to purchase iPads for their residents. The seniors were partnered with high school students for training and year-long technical support, helping them use technology to stay in touch with loved ones, doctors and other service providers.
