John W. Carson Foundation

Information has surfaced showing that Johnny Carson, the beloved “Tonight Show” host who passed away in 2005, left $156 million to the John W. Carson Foundation. After his death, the $156 million contribution was transferred from Carson’s estate to his foundation, where the money is being used to support dozens of nonprofit organizations.

Almost all of the grants funded by this foundation were based in Los Angeles as shown in the 2008 Tax Return (Form 990).

It is my view that this may be a good funding source for our BDPA Los Angeles chapter. We plan to submit a grant proposal to the Carson Foundation:

Allan L Alexander, Executive Director
9350 Wilshire Blvd Ste 250
Beverly Hills, CA 90212
Telephone:(310) 288-9970
