Mission Statement

The John Gogian Family Foundation is a private charitable foundation dedicated to supporting community-based organizations that enhance the quality of people’s lives in Los Angeles County.

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 grantmaking is focused on organizations that serve the needs of the developmentally disabled, vulnerable seniors, and vulnerable youth within Los Angeles County. With our grantee partners, 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’s scholarship program in selected schools within Los Angeles County supports continuing students but will not accept new applications.
