The world is incontestably a richer place because of WILLIE DIXON’S musical contributions alone. Believing that his work was not yet finished, Dixon devoted much of his time in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s to the organization he founded, BLUES HEAVEN FOUNDATION. His vision was to allow the echoes of great American Blues to continue to develop, to encourage a new generation of blues greats and to provide for the on-going welfare of senior Blues musicians. 

Blues Heaven Foundation would like to thank our amazing sponsors!

Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation would like to thank The Rolling Stones and BMG for their generous donation and their continued support of the Blues!


​This charitable gift will assist Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation with their continued endeavors promoting Blues music, as well as the ongoing preservation of the historic Chess Records building, where much of this music was recorded.  


On behalf of Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation, we thank you so very much!
