Annual JBFF EVENT

Holiday Toy Drive

The Christmas Holiday Toy Drive was another favorite event of our father. The joy on the faces of the children as he handed them their toys was truly a thrill. We now raise enough funds and toy donations to give away multiple gifts to each child!

J.A.M.P.

James Brown Academy of Musik Pupils (J.A.M.P.) is a Musical, instrumental, initiative year-round hub designed for the youth to discover their musical ability to “Staying on the Good Foot.” Founder Deanna Brown-Thomas, daughter of the Late “Godfather of Soul” collaborated with various educational consultants and music educators across the country to form this awesome melodic, educational academy. Headquartered in Augusta, Georgia— the stomping grounds to the Late James Brown, the hardest-working man in the business— J.A.M.P. is a non-profit musical village that operates solely on small grants, donations and tuition. J.A.M.P’s intentions are to motivate, educate and inspire children through the universal language of music and enrich their hidden musical abilities.
