JBJ Soul Foundation

Rebuilding pride in one’s self and one’s community – one SOUL at a time.

Our Mission

The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation exists to combat issues that force families and individuals into economic despair. Through the funding and creation of programs and partnerships, we support innovative community efforts to break the cycle of poverty, homelessness, and hunger.

It is the organization’s goal to recognize and maximize the human potential in those affected by poverty and homelessness by offering assistance in establishing programs that provide food and affordable housing while supporting social services and job training programs.

The Foundation started its work through the localized efforts of the Philadelphia Soul Arena Football Team and its celebrity owners (which included Jon Bon Jovi). The Foundation quickly expanded its work to have a national presence in it’s commitment to develop role models for our city on the individual level, corporate level, and community level by developing, promoting, and assisting in innovative and long-lasting solutions to rebuilding pride in one’s self and one’s community – one SOUL at a time.

This website currently includes archived news items documenting the work we’ve done since the Foundation’s launch as the Philadelphia Soul Charitable Foundation in October 2006. The site will be updated as we continue to make a difference in the City of Brotherly Love and beyond… and ask you to join us in changing lives, one SOUL at a time.
