This Is How We Help and Support Our Community


It is no secret that Mr. Johnson utilizes many of his own resources to help and support his community.

“The Johnson Family Foundation, to date, has been the biggest benefactor to "Not My Kid "charitable organization.  Founded in 2000, 'notMYkid' is a Scottsdale-based non-profit dedicated to providing a full continuum of life-saving prevention, early-action programs, behavioral health treatment, and peer support for youth and families. Their team of prevention and behavioral health experts are dedicated to helping youth overcome challenges during their most vulnerable years. Programs are traditionally delivered in schools, community organizations, at the workplace, and at our new wellness facility, The Well. With the arrival of a global pandemic, it is not business as usual and our commitment to quality and inclusivity led to a swift transition to add virtual programs and expansion into treatment services to meet the rapidly changing needs of families.

“George and Jana Johnson continue to make positive impacts in our Pinal County communities. Through their generous donation, Family Advocacy Center staff can fulfill their mission to our community more effectively. With both Family Advocacy Centers operating on limited budgets, the two donations will have a huge impact on the San Tan Valley location. Words cannot express how much these donations mean to all those at the Pinal County Attorney’s Office and the San Tan Valley Advocacy Center who work so hard to make Pinal County a safer, better place to live,” said Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles.

Pinal County

Mr. Johnson found out that Pinal County did not have the funds to purchase a set of portable scales. These scales are invaluable in checking big trucks on the highway, keeping the trucks at a safe weight and not to damage the roadways.

He immediately and without fanfare purchased the scales for Pinal County.


George often makes considerable donations to local and statewide charities.
