Required fields are marked * Subscribe Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  New grant funding and charitable giving opportunities are being created thanks to the collaborative efforts of the City’s Housing Department and the Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF) by transferring the former Human Services Endowment Fund to PCF and establishing the new “Pasadena Assistance Fund.” The charitable endowment will be managed by PCF while the City acts as advisor to the fund and directs the grant making.We wanted to think outside the box to see how we could take the City’s existing Human Services Endowment Fund and increase its grant-making capacity. After careful consideration, we agreed that a partnership with PCF was a great solution to meet our goals,” Pasadena Housing Department Director William Huang said.The fund will continue to be focused with the same spirit and purpose of its original donors: providing support to local non-profit social service agencies that help people facing poverty, or those with disabilities or other challenges. The new partnership, however, opens up two new important means for growing the fund, currently with a principal balance of about $1.8 million.First, the City-PCF partnership provides greater visibility and fundraising opportunities. Already, the new fund name, statement and logo clearly communicates its purpose: “Building Better Lives.” Huang said the new fund’s higher profile “will hopefully inspire local community members to consider this fund in their overall charitable giving and estate plans.”Second, transferring fiscal management to PCF allows for greater investment returns over the long term due to PCF’s ability to utilize investment vehicles not previously available to the City. PCF’s investment strategy employs a diversified global portfolio of equities, bonds, and other investment vehicles that the City cannot use in the investment of public funds, PCF Executive Director Jennifer DeVoll said.Future distributions from the fund will supplement the Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) provided by the federal government to the City. Since federal funding for CDBG has declined in recent years, it is even more important to build a hometown source of similar funding for the worthwhile local social services programs, Huang said.DeVoll said helping grow the Pasadena Assistance Fund “is right in our sweet spot” for PCF.“We build hometown legacies, permanent funds to support the critical services offered by non-profit organizations within our community. We are thrilled to be working with the City to help grow the fund through prudent investment and heightened visibility.”Since its inception in 1992, the Pasadena Assistance Fund (formerly the Human Services Endowment Fund), has been managed by the City’s Human Services and Recreation Department, and then the Housing Department, distributing about $2.8 million in grants to Pasadena area non-profits agencies and organizations.For more information about the Pasadena Community Foundation, 260 S.

first_img 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Much has been made of the new “fiduciary standard” rule handed down by the Department of Labor on Wednesday.This regulation promises to lower expenses paid by some investors in retirement accounts, and that could help plenty of people. But some observers view this as a modest change in the greater scheme of things.Lower fees are overshadowed by other strategies and tactics retirement-focused investors can take on their own — steps that many people routinely ignore, said Tom Kmak, CEO of Fiduciary Benchmarks, a Scottsdale, Ariz., financial-research company focused on retirement issues.  Kmak examined six key factors and ranked them in importance. Specifically, he looked at how modest changes in these factors would affect the retirement readiness of a hypothetical 42-year-old woman.1. Delaying Social SecurityThe one key step for enhancing long-term retirement “readiness” would be to delay Social Security benefits, Kmak said. The longer you wait, the higher your monthly benefits will be when you start collecting. He urges people to defer Social Security until full retirement age (66 or 67 for most people now in the workforce). Even higher benefits await those who delay until 70. Instead, most people start collecting lower benefits when they’re younger, often as early as 62. continue reading »last_img read more
