Growing Better Together

Our Mission

Our mission is simple – serve Johnson County by growing endowments and distributing funds for the greater community good. The Community Foundation of Johnson County Board of Directors has established priorities as defined by our mission:

  • Attract charitable gifts to build endowments

  • Make philanthropic grants in the areas of arts, culture and humanities; education; environment and animals; health and human services; and public and societal benefit

  • Provide responsible financial stewardship as evidenced by adherence to the national standards established by the Council on Foundations

  • Provide community leadership serving as catalyst and convener to bring partners and programs together to identify needs and opportunities

  • Shape effective responses to improve the quality of life in Johnson County
