Description

Chandra and Jimmie Johnson launched the Jimmie Johnson Foundation in 2006. To date, more than $8.7 million has been contributed to various organizations.

The foundation currently focuses on funding K-12 public education, primarily through the Jimmie Johnson Foundation/Lowe’s Toolbox for Education Champions Grants program. Champions Grants have been awarded to 94 schools located in California, Oklahoma and North Carolina, where the Johnsons grew up and currently reside.

In addition, each year the Foundation selects 5 charities that support on 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 Sprint Cup race.

Past foundation partnerships include working with San Diego Habitat for Humanity to construct four homes on Foundation Lane in El Cajon; building Jimmie Johnson’s Victory Lanes, a four lane bowling center for campers at Pattie and Kyle Petty’s Victory Junction in Randleman, N.C; and funding the construction of the Toddler Playroom at the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte. The foundation continues to work with the Hendrick Marrow Program, Make-A-Wish and Project L.I.F.T.
