Our Foundation exists to serve disadvantaged people by
assisting them to obtain education and employment.
We have chosen education because we believe that it is the best means to empower people to get better jobs, to become more independent and to participate more fully in our society.
We fund scholarships and other programs, which serve people in financial need. The Foundation’s programs are meant to help people who, through no fault of their own, do not enjoy the advantages of the affluent. Grantmaking is focused on organizations and institutions that serve Indigenous Peoples, people with disabilities and economically disadvantaged people.
The Johnson Scholarship Foundation is intended to be a perpetual body and it is our responsibility to improve it with each succeeding generation. We are privately endowed and do not solicit donations. Our capacity for productive work depends upon our investment returns. Oversight and management of the Foundation’s capital is, therefore, a vital part of our work. Please review the financial section of this website as it describes and illustrates our financial management, diverse asset allocation and investment process.
