The Crail-Johnson Foundation’s (the Foundation) funding supports organizations providing services and programs primarily in Los Angeles and gives priority to the following target communities: San Pedro, Carson, Harbor City, Wilmington, Long Beach, Compton, Watts, and South Los Angeles. (There are some exceptions made, primarily based on program area; for example, the Foundation will consider other communities in Los Angeles for programs and services provided to homeless youth.)
The Foundation supports programs as a means to address the long-term well-being of children, youth and community. It is through the support of Education, Human Services and Health that the Foundation hopes to assist in providing children, youth and their families with the tools necessary to build a life of quality. Support is exclusively focused on programs that address the needs of economically, socially and physically disadvantaged children. The Foundation supports both proven approaches and innovative programs aimed at systemic change and provides support for new, continuing, or expanding programs. Programs and services may be school-based, school-linked, or other community-based places.
The Foundation provides financial support primarily through grants to public non-profit organizations that are exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code and are not a private foundation under Section 509(a). The Foundation provides grants for program/project support and general operating support. On occasion, the Foundation will consider grants to support capital projects as well as selected endowments. In addition, the Foundation provides technical assistance to selected community-based initiatives benefiting children and families.
Support is not granted for programs and projects benefiting religious purposes, university level education, research, events recognizing individuals or organizations, political causes or programs attempting to influence legislation. No grants are made directly to individuals.
In general, the Foundation does not consider multi-year grants. Grants are made to nonprofit organizations for one year, and grantees are eligible to reapply each year. However, in general, the Foundation does not provide grants for more than three consecutive years.
