About Us

Supporting Excellence in the Public Schools of Altadena, Pasadena, and Sierra Madre

At the Pasadena Educational Foundation (PEF) we believe strong schools build strong communities and strong communities build strong schools. For almost 50 years, we have been committed to building dynamic community partnerships to support our public schools. Being a vital part of our community—for almost 50 years—enables us to provide essential resources and enrichment opportunities to every public school student in Altadena, Pasadena, and Sierra Madre.

We have a far-reaching commitment to the arts, technology, and teaching innovation in Pasadena Unified School District schools.

From enhancing arts and music, to elevating STEM education and technology, to engaging our young people’s minds and bodies during the summer, PEF provides unique and enriching programs throughout the district all year-round.
