Neil Young is known almost as well for his charity and philanthropy work as he is for his music. The Farm Aid co-founder who also raises thousands of dollars annually for physically and mentally impaired children via Bridge School Concerts will be honored as MusiCares Person of the Year for 2010.

"Neil has set a standard of artistic integrity and iconoclastic creativity for more than four decades, and his achievements have been matched by his unwavering humanitarianism," Neil Portnow, president/CEO of the Recording Academy and the MusiCares Foundation said in a statement.

Young will receive the award at a reception in LA on January 29th, right before the Grammy Awards.
