The Johnson Family Foundation, with assets of $77 million, is a US nonprofit foundation providing grants to US-based organizations for environmental health, sexuality and local development issues. The foundation funds programs to improve the health of our environment; promote equality and social progress; and support education and youth. Grantmaking is place-based and, in environmental health and LGBT issues, national in scope.
Established on 1 December 1990 as The Thomas Phillips and Jane Moore Johnson Foundation. It was founded by Thomas Phillips Johnson, co-founder of Kirkpatrick & Lockhart, Pittsburgh's largest law firm and his wife, Jane Moore Johnson. While Mr. Johnson died in 2000, following his wife's death in 1998, , the foundation is now in its third generation of Johnson family involvement.
Since its inception JFF has awarded grants of nearly $30 million, including $3 million in 2010.
