The John Gogian Family Foundation is a private charitable foundation dedicated to supporting community-based organizations that serve the needs of the developmentally disabled, the elderly, and abused or neglected youth within Los Angeles County. We are committed to providing a positive and lasting impact in people’s lives by enabling a safe and stable environment in which they can live and grow.

The John Gogian Family Foundation was established in 1982 to further Mr. Gogian’s diverse philanthropic interests. His empathy for those less fortunate was shaped early through family life experiences that provided the inspiration for the Foundation’s work.


Our main efforts are concentrated in two areas. First is a grant program that provides funding for organizations within the Foundation’s three program areas. We use a two-step application process. The first step is to submit the Letter of Inquiry (LOI). If the organization is selected for further review by the Foundation, a full Grant Application must be submitted by the deadline. The Foundation’s second area of focus is a scholarship program in selected schools within Los Angeles County. Recipients receive a $20,000 scholarship to be used over four years.
