Our Mission:

The WLD Johnson Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded in 1991, is based upon the conviction that an education is essential to a healthy thriving community. The Foundation provides access to postsecondary education to members of our community who otherwise would not have the financial means to fulfill their educational goals.

The Foundation sees higher education as a catalyst, an agent of change for individuals, families, communities, and nations. We envision a community that recognizes the importance of educational attainment and assures positive educational outcomes are accessible to all regardless of economic circumstance. In our community, doors will not be closed to those who lack financial resources, and postsecondary education will be available to all with the potential to succeed.
