About The Jake Owen Foundation

The Jake Owen Foundation was established in 2010 as a registered 501 (C) 3 private nonprofit foundation through the vision and effort by Jake Owen initially to offer financial support on a national level to children battling cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases.  He has also been providing assistance to youth organizations and charities in Indian River County.

Today, the Jake Owen Foundation is proud to be able to expand its mission of helping people in the places they call home, all while supporting the beneficiaries who have been a

 part of the Foundation since its inception. Our helping hands are able to reach out anywhere and everywhere to make a difference — raising funds through private donations, brand partnerships, and special events assisting child and youth programs, education, healthcare, fitness, nutrition, enrichment, and crisis care. By supporting organizations and charitable partners everywhere, the Jake Owen Foundation  is evolving into a national charity, with a local approach. To date the Jake Owen Foundation has raised more than $1.4 million dollars for charitable causes and for other nonprofit organizations. 


Funding for the nonprofit Jake Owen Foundation and providing aid is generated primarily through monies raised from the annual Jake Owen Foundation Benefit Concert, Songwriters Showcase and Hale Groves / Jake Owen Celebrity Pro Am Golf Tournament held each December in Vero Beach. It does not stop there, however. The ultimate goal of the Jake Owen Foundation is to grow its mission worldwide.
