What We Stand For

These values and philosophy govern the operations and grant-making of the John Gogian Family Foundation:


To serve others that are in need or suffering. To support and nurture the capabilities and contributions of others.


To strengthen the vital role of local organizations in addressing public needs. To reinforce the interconnections between people so that they may build sustainable, supportive communities.


To care for others with empathy and understanding.


To exercise character, principle and honesty in all our actions. To support worthy institutions that are accountable to their missions and constituencies.


To treat others with honor and respect. To draw attention to the good work of nonprofit organizations without concern for public recognition of the Foundation.
