From Rebeca Mauleón
In 2017, we embarked on an ambitious program to serve over 23,000 middle school students in the San Francisco and Oakland Unified School Districts. As we develop and strengthen relationships with our school and student communities, we see them evolve as an extension of our SFJAZZ family. Throughout all of our education programs, our core belief is that we nurture the student first, then the music will come. This means that everything we do – whether it’s through our High School All-Stars or scholarships for private lessons – is to ensure that students will continue to grow.
They clearly learn through this type of expression.

Now more than ever, SFJAZZ is committed to schools, teachers, students, and families – making our programs more integral to the communities we serve.
I am proud to announce that from now through December 31st, your gift to SFJAZZ will be matched by SFJAZZ Trustee Terry Berkemeir and his wife, Lori Lerner. Through their incredible generosity, your doubled gift amount will go towards SFJAZZ Education.
Join us by making an additional gift to your SFJAZZ Membership, and help us support students around the Bay Area. Please don’t miss this opportunity for your gift to be matched!
