From Haiti to North Carolina, Eric Church’s Chief Cares Foundation Continues Record Year


Since Hurricane Matthew devastated regions in Haiti, Eric Church and his wife Katherine’s foundation Chief Cares has been helping six townships in the region with more than 500 families aided thanks to the non-profit’s efforts. However, the impact of the less-than-three-year-old foundation’s mission was also felt domestically last night as its outreach focused on the seven-time GRAMMY nominee’s home state of North Carolina with an organizational record $1 million donation to a cause that has personally impacted the Church family—type 1 diabetes. The JDRF’s Hope Gala held in Charlotte, N.C. was honoring Eric’s parents, Ken and Rita Church, with the “Living and Giving Award” for their dedication when Eric and Katherine Church surprised the 1,000+ audience.

“Our foundation work and giving to others in need is my absolute favorite thing that we get to do,” said Katherine Church. “We are blessed to be a blessing! What a special opportunity it is for us to give through Chief Cares and present this gift tonight to JDRF in honor of Rita to eliminate this disease!”

“I can’t think of a more fitting occasion to make Chief Cares’ largest donation than in honor of my mother and her battle with type 1 diabetes,” said Eric Church.

“JDRF is thrilled and grateful to Eric and Katherine Church for their generous gift to further type 1 diabetes research,” said Laura Maciag, Executive Director, JDRF Greater Western Carolinas Chapter. “We have made incredible progress to treat, prevent and cure this disease and are at such an exciting stage in our journey. The commitment and dedication of the Church family is extremely appreciated as we move forward in our vision to create a world without type 1 diabetes.”

5th Annual Eric Church Band “Put a Club In My Hand” Golf Tournament Raises Over $200,000


The Fifth Annual Eric Church Band “Put a Club in My Hand” Golf Tournament was held in Nashville on Monday, Aug. 22nd. The event was produced by Big Hearted Babes and raised $214,190 for MusiCares®, the charitable arm of The Recording Academy® which provides a safety net of assistance for those in the music industry to help with medical, financial, and personal emergencies. The invitation-only tournament was an all-day event featuring an 18-hole scramble for artists, musicians, tour staff, music industry professionals and more. Funds for the donation were raised through 160 registered golfers, 34 generous partners and a silent auction. To date, the annual event has raised more than $600,000 for MusiCares.


“What makes this event so special is that not only does it reflect Eric’s longtime support of MusiCares, but each year, Eric’s band and crew put this fundraising tournament together,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy and MusiCares. “For me, this underscores the fact that MusiCares serves music people in professions throughout the industry. In fact, we recently started a round of special outreach and assistance for music people affected by the Louisiana floods, and benefits such as this golf tournament help MusiCares to be immediately responsive when a crisis strikes part of our community.”

Fans can catch Eric Church and his band on the road in 2017 on the recently announced Holdin’ My Own Tour.
