About Us

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.

The Legacy Still Lives

 Not only did he revolutionize music by creating three new genres, James Brown, The Godfather of Soul also played a major role uplifting people in such a way that would forever shape young minds to transform the world.

Our Mission

Our collective mission is to continue our father's legacy of charitable giving. His main goal was to bring hope to those who are less fortunate.

Through The James Brown Family Foundation, our commission is to expand James Brown's vision by touching those here at home and around the world to assist underprivileged children and impoverished families through our initiatives and projects.
