There was a visionary who thought it robbery not to give unto those who were impoverished. Our father, James Brown, the godfather of soul was that visionary. His musical legacy is celebrated all over the world. Our focus here at The James Brown Family Foundation, Inc. is on his legacy of giving.

Our Story

For many years now, we have continued to build upon our father's legacy of giving in many communities around the country. The James Brown Family Foundation, Inc is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2007 for charitable and educational purposes.

Our father, founded the Annual James Brown Turkey and Toy Giveaways. These events assisted underprivileged children and impoverished families. It is in accordance with his wishes that we continue to bring hope and fulfillment to even more families in need. The children of James Brown are dedicated to honoring our father's memory. JBFF organizes and manages those two main events and have established other annual giving programs.
