Chair’s Message

First off, I would like to thank Eric Johnson for his 20 plus years of service to The Crail-Johnson Foundation (Foundation) as chairman.  He leaves a legacy of leadership that will never be eclipsed.

As the Foundation enters its third decade of operation, we are given an opportunity to look back and reflect on how we got to where we are today and our plans for the future. We have been blessed with an exceptional staff and a series of dedicated board members. And we are all grateful for their years of service. It is a testament to everyone involved that the original endowment was invested in the community wisely and effectively. I am proud that the work that we do here has had and will continue to have an impact on our community.

With our initial 20 years of committed funding coming to a close, we have moved to restructure our grant making activities and streamline our internal operations. We continue to be committed to the communities we serve and strive to maintain the high level of involvement we have had in the past.

These past 20 years have been an amazing journey for me personally and my time with The Crail-Johnson Foundation is one of the things of which I am most proud. I am looking forward to the next 20 years and see my next big challenge as engaging our next generation and maintaining a high level of family involvement.
