Grants Program Information

Thank you for your interest in the John Gogian Family Foundation. We are committed to providing a positive and lasting impact in the lives of abused and neglected youth, seniors,  and the developmentally disabled, by enabling a safe and stable environment in which they can live and grow.  The specific areas of funding can be found in the Grant Guidelines section of this website.

The Foundation has two grant cycles per year with funding decisions made in May and November.  We utilize a 2-step application process. The first step in applying is to fill in the Letter of Inquiry (LOI) by the designated deadline. Organizations will be notified of the outcome of their LOI within 45 days of the submittal deadline.

Those organizations that best fit the Foundation’s grant guidelines, criteria, and funding priorities will be invited to submit a full Grant Application, which will be e-mailed to the organization.

The Foundation’s staff will review incoming Grant Applications and conduct in-depth proposal reviews. Grant Applications that meet the Foundation’s stated objectives and evaluation criteria may be scheduled for a site visit before being sent to the Board of Directors for a final determination.

An organization may apply for and receive a grant annually, for up to three consecutive years. Thereafter, it must refrain from applying for at least one year.

To returning partners and prospective partners, we look forward to reading about your organization, the programs you provide, and the impact you are having in the community.  Thank you for all you do on behalf of abused and neglected youth, developmentally disabled children and adults, and vulnerable seniors in Los Angeles County.
