The Foundation understands the impact the COVID-19 crisis has had on its Grantee Partners and has taken swift action to show its support.   

The Foundation immediately issued an unrestricted grant to all core Grantees to assist with operations, staffing, and remote programming.   

We will continue to engage and share resources from local Professional Management Organizations (TNP, ESC, CNM, etc.), other organizations, and the government to assist you with educational opportunities, webinars, and programming options. 

We stand with all nonprofits struggling to serve their clients and new individuals and families seeking services. We appreciate your tireless work, service, innovation, protection for your staff and clients, and all the strategizing and worry you have done since this crisis began. Thank you for all you are doing on behalf of those you serve. You are all our heroes!


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

The 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 effort is concentrated on a grant program that provides funding for organizations within the Foundation’s three program areas. The Foundation’s scholarship program in selected schools within Los Angeles County supports continuing students but will not accept new applications in 2020 or thereafter.
