About the John J. Hemmingson Foundation
John J. Hemmingson lives in the Inland Northwest. He focuses his giving on Eastern Washington, North Idaho, and beyond.
Building resiliency in our communities is the foundations goal. Through the foundation, John gives primarily to local organizations that address poverty, education, and medical needs. He also has a soft spot for the welfare of animals.
Though John has been giving through personal donations and his Foundation for decades, a formal board structure with John as the chairing member was established in 2023. Under John’s guidance, the board selects causes for support that remain true to his mission to build resilient communities and support families throughout the region.
