Support Artists, Educators, Students, and Creative ProfessionalsMake a Contribution
Over 37 years, the Bay Area has made a powerful contribution to jazz. The generosity, curiosity, and commitment of thousands of music fans has grown SFJAZZ into one of the largest employers of jazz musicians internationally and one of the largest providers of music education programs in the Western United States.
The coronavirus pandemic has affected us all. Musicians were some of the very first professionals to lose opportunities. Concert halls will be some of the last spaces allowed to reopen for our communal gathering. The livelihoods of so many individuals are not only impacted during the months we shelter in place, but for many months ahead as we all try to reclaim the places and practices that define our humanity.
Your fully tax-deductible gift will support:
Artists: SFJAZZ is one of the largest employers of jazz musicians around the globe. The greatest impact for artists will come with the return of live performances. The artists need, and we need, your help to plan for that moment.
Educators & Students: Our teaching artists and staff are moving curriculum online to increase access to arts education for all students, during school closures and into the future. SFJAZZ reaches every public and charter middle school in San Francisco and Oakland.
Creative Professionals: Our entire team is engaged in new projects to strengthen our operations and set a roadmap for what lies ahead. A vibrant reopening - and the opportunity to support so many artists - will only be possible with an investment today in our talented and committed staff.
Please consider a donation to the SFJAZZ Community Campaign, supporting our organization and the many individuals who work up front, on stage, and behind the scenes to bring you groundbreaking collaborations and cultural transformations year-round.
We need your help to continue to present great art and to support those who work tirelessly to spark the transcendent moments found in live performance.
