Mission

The Janson Foundation was established in 1983 to provide capital grants to deserving charitable organizations located in Skagit County, Washington.

Edward W. Janson had a longtime career as a public servant in Skagit County and was committed to the citizens of the county. He established his Foundation to assist the ongoing capital needs of deserving charitable organizations. Mr. Janson was particularly interested in supporting the capital needs of Christian organizations/missions and programs that benefit youth.

Guidelines

The application deadline for the Janson Foundation is February 28. Applicants will be notified of grant decisions by April 30.

The Janson Foundation provides support to charitable organizations for the purchase of equipment, the construction of facilities or the acquisition of land. In addition, the Foundation funds the repair of existing facilities and the replacement of aging equipment.

Grant requests for general operating or program support will not be considered.

The majority of grants from the Janson Foundation are 1 year in duration. On occasion, multi-year support is awarded.

There is a 3-year limit for receiving grants. After an organization receives 3 consecutive years of grant funding from the Janson Foundation, the organization will not be eligible to receive funding for a fourth consecutive year. The organization may apply to the Janson Foundation again after a 1-year hiatus.
