Los Angeles-based entrepreneur, Blake Johnson, announced today a significant donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County and the Inland Empire.
Blake Johnson, the founder of the Blake Johnson Alliance, has been a longtime supporter of Big Brothers Big Sisters. His work with the mentoring network inspired the creation of The Alliance, a philanthropic organization that further the advancement of education, arts, sciences, and social well-being.
Johnson personally made the donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County and the Inland Empire and continues to serve as a Big Brother to this day. The $100,000 donation is intended to help the organization to do more community outreach on a local level.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is the largest volunteer-supported mentoring network in the nation.

This realization inspired the regular donation cadence of the Blake Johnson Alliance, which was set up to diversify financial support among companies and organizations that contribute to the advancement of education, arts, science, and social well-being.
“This donation is incredibly personal to me,” said Johnson. “The work that Big Brothers Big Sisters does is truly humbling. I am honored to be a part of that both as a Big Brother and as a donor. I am happy to contribute to a fantastic 2022 for BBBS.”
The Blake Johnson Alliance was founded to change the way philanthropic institutions issue financial support to innovative companies and individuals. The Alliance’s mission is to support organizations in the advancement of education, arts, sciences, and social well-being via regularly issued grants.
