A charitable foundation in memory of singer and humanitarian Brad Delp was recently established to carry on his spirit and legacy of compassion, generosity and kindness.

According to foundation spokesman Bill Faulkner, the idea for the foundation came from Brad’s adult children Jennifer and John Michael as a way to honor their father.

“To honor our father’s memory, the foundation will give grants to in-need school systems, programs and individuals that provide music education”, said Jennifer and John Michael, “Funding in the form of grants and scholarships will also be given to individuals that desire to continue their own musical education.”

Delp, lead singer for the bands Boston and Beatle Juice, was well known not only as a gifted singer but as having had an uncommon ability to listen, truly seek to understand and care about people.

During his lifetime, Brad lived a vegetarian, non-violent lifestyle and was particularly generous with his time and talent, playing many benefit concerts each year and otherwise supporting causes that he believed in such as children's causes, anti violence (to people and animals) organizations and school fundraisers, as well as those that helped hunger and shelter programs, among many others.

As gifted a performer as he was, Bradley is remembered as a far better person by family, close friends, bandmates and fans around the world.
