About PCLB

Dr. Peter Buck and his wife Carmen Lucia established the PCLB Foundation in 1999 as a private family foundation that seeks to improve the quality of life in the communities it serves.

PCLB’s work is directed by its purpose statement, “giving motivated people the tools they need to help themselves.” These tools are about more than grants and include guidance, connections, convening, sharing information, and other forms of assistance that the foundation and its grantees can provide. We look to support the highest‐quality organizations that show initiative, leadership, and innovation.
