Jimmie Johnson Foundation, Charlotte, North Carolina;
Chandra and Jimmie Johnson launched the Jimmie Johnson Foundation in 2006. To date, more than $9.5 million has been contributed to various organizations.
The Foundation currently focuses on funding K-12 public education, primarily through the Jimmie Johnson Foundation Champions Grant program. Champions Grants have been awarded to 106 school projects located in El Cajon/San Diego, California,; Muskogee and Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Mecklenburg and Cabarrus Counties in North Carolina.
In addition, each year the Foundation selects 5 charities that support K-12 public education to be featured on Johnson’s Blue Bunny Helmet of Hope. Charities are nominated by fans nationwide, and are voted on by the public. Blue Bunny Helmet of Hope charities receive a cash grant and national exposure on the helmet worn for a select Cup race.
