Elevating Neighborhoods with a Purpose to a New Level!
“YOUR COMMUNITY FOUNDATION COMMITTEE,” or what The Johnson Development Corp (JDC) calls YCFC, for short, helps give residents the pride and comfort in knowing the unsurpassed quality expected from each JDC community will be maintained, sustained, and even enhanced throughout the years.
How does the YCFC Work?
A .5% foundation fee is collected at each closing of the sales price of each home. These funds are then set aside for such purposes as the Homeowners Association Board, upon recommendation of YCFC, deems beneficial to the community. Each time a property is re-sold, the fee is once again collected. Hence, the reserve, which always stays within the community, perpetuates for the life of the development.
Who Benefits from YCFC?
YCFC partners with the Homeowners Association Board to help select projects including, but not limited to:
- Community events, clubs, groups, and sports
- Health and wellness
- The environment
- Enhancement and/or improvement of infrastructure within Grand Central Park
How is the money spent?
The foundation commitee works in concert with the Community Association Board to review grant applications and select projects and programs believed to best reflect the needs and interests of the community. In addition, foundation fees fund community artwork, holiday decorations, and special events.
Art Makes Us Smile
The “Four People” sculpture which can represent parents and children or just four friends is a hallmark in Johnson Development communities. Grand Central Park is no different. The bronze sculpture which helps remind us that we are all part of a unique community will soon be installed in our community.
Helping Teachers Get Back in the Classroom
Foundation fees are making it possible for Conroe Independent School District teachers to advance their training and to learn new skills. Contributions to the CISD Education Foundation help fund annual continuing education scholarships for teachers who serve Grand Central Park students.
Children’s Catastrophic Fund
Residents of Grand Central Park take pride knowing their community supports families who are challenged with the financial stress of caring for a child with a chronic, debilitating illness or congenital or genetic disorder. The Children’s Catastrophic Fund (CCF) has been established to help ease financial pressures through grants to deserving families. Families who satisfy the guidelines and successfully submit an application are eligible to receive an annual gift funded through foundation fees until the child in need is eighteen years old. The hardship grant can be used at the family’s discretion.
