How You Can Invest In The Future

Become a Legacy Society – Give a Planned Giving Gift

The Pasadena Educational Foundation and Pasadena Unified School District want to thank you for your investment in our public schools. Your generosity ensures that every child in our community has the opportunity to achieve academic excellence and can look forward to a successful future.

The Pasadena Educational Foundation can assist you in determining an appropriate vehicle for your planned giving.

Society Benefits

In addition to the knowledge that generations of students will benefit from your generosity, as a member of PEF’s Legacy Society you will be invited to special events where you will have the opportunity to meet the superintendent, principals, teachers and students, and learn about recent accomplishments and innovations in the district. There are also naming opportunities for significant gifts.

You may consider several planned giving “vehicles” that name the Pasadena Educational Foundation as beneficiary.

These include:

  • Gifts of Stocks or Bonds
  • Bequest (specified in your will or living trust)
  • Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)
  • Charitable Lead Trust (CLT)
  • Qualified Retirement Plan
  • Life Insurance
  • Life Estate

Please feel free to contact Angela Parris at 626.396.3625 or

If you have already made a bequest or named PEF in your planned giving, please contact us so we may acknowledge you as part of the Legacy Society.
