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 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: a grant program that provides funding for organizations within the Foundation’s three program areas and a scholarship program in selected schools within Los Angeles County. Recipients receive a $22,000 scholarship to be used over four years.
