Established in 2001 by the Hooker family, the John Lee Hooker Foundation is an IRS-recognized non-profit organization.
The  Foundation mission is to:
Provide funding and support for music, art and education programs for underprivileged, underrepresented and at-risk youth in the San Francisco / Oakland Bay Area and beyond by continually raising and maintaining funding year-round for distribution to non-profit organizations in need.
The foundation intends to preserve John Lee Hooker's generous and compassionate spirit and ensure that young people from all walks of life have access to cultural, musical and artistic exposure.
You can't go no deeper than me and my guitar. I open my mouth, and it's there. I get so deep the teardrops come into my eyes. That's why I wear my dark glasses – so you won't see the teardrops”
