The Johnson Foundation

They convene the right people on timely and compelling topics and empower them to find innovative solutions with sustained impact. The meetings among leaders and experts are small and intimate: the issues they address are big and important. The neutrality creates a unique oasis of trust so the diversity of perspectives around the table are heard and respected. World-class facilitation inspires provocative, yet collaborative, dialogue. Interesting things begin to happen. A common vision emerges. A new path is discovered. Alliances are built. Transformational change takes root. Who they are reflects the passions and values of the Johnson Family. Three generations of this successful Midwestern business family have guided the work. Their enduring commitment to a better world is also the vision. Their legacy spans 50 years. Several organizations were conceived here, among them: the National Endowment for the Arts, National Public Radio, the International Criminal Court and the Presidential Climate Action Plan. Wingspread, the centerpiece of the campus, is a designated U.S. National Historic Landmark. Together their focused mission, unique convening model, iconic architectural setting and secluded natural landscape create opportunities for positive and lasting change.
