ALDEAN has contributed to a wide variety of organizations during his career, including supporting children's causes, veterans, first responders and working-class families. He raised more than $2 million for ATRIUM HEALTH NAVICENT BEVERLY KNIGHT OLSEN CHILDREN's HOSPITAL, and GEORGIA's CHILDREN's HOSPITAL in his hometown of MACON, GA, along with supporting ACM LIFTING LIVES, the RED CROSS and more. ALDEAN avidly supports SUSAN G. KOMEN FOR THE CURE in the fight against breast cancer, and has supported the organization and raised over $4.1 million during the past decade. ALDEAN also led the first of its kind, six-day "Triumph Over Tragedy" workshop after the tragedy at LAS VEGAS' ROUTE 91 HARVEST FESTIVAL.
“JASON ALDEAN doesn’t have to brag about his songs or his concert tours," said CRS/CRB Board Pres. KURT JOHNSON. "They speak for themselves. He also doesn’t call attention to his massive philanthropic work. So, we will. Join us at CRS as we shine a light on all the good that JASON does and the good people he supports.”
