Bon Jovi is an Affordable Housing Funder. Who Knew? – Housing – Inside Philanthropy

For longtime rock star Jon Bon Jovi, both creative juice and philanthropic prowess seem to be flowing quite readily these days. While Bon Jovi reports spending many daytime hours in the studio working on a new album, he is also winning awards for his philanthropic efforts, particularly for his foundation’s work with distressed communities and affordable housing.

Besides squeezing out The Boss as New Jersey’s top rocker, Jon Bon Jovi is squeezing in a lot of time for his charitable work. His foundation, the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation (formerly the Philadelphia Soul Charitable Foundation) is a non-profit organization doing work all over the country to help poor and middle class families fight the tide of inequality.

I knew this – recently I read an article with him sitting in a café that sells food and returns the profits to troubled communities (I’m recalling this from memory…the gist could have been someone different but nonetheless it was about this 80’s rocker and it struck me as cool, thinking he’d been a shiny stadium filler once and was now doing something probably really personally fulfilling in a different avenue).

    1. Yes, he is pretty much the definition of cool in my book. If only all the rock stars out there were like him!
