Did you know that 100% of the Monterey Jazz Festival’s world-recognized education programs are funded by charitable donations from people like you?

MJF invests $800,000 each year in educating the next generation. We could never continue to offer these pre-eminent programs serving thousands of young people without YOUR ongoing support. Festival ticket sales DO NOT fund these life-changing experiences. Contributions from generous donors like you DO.

Over the past 30 years, more than 100,000 young people have been inspired by music and mentored by some of the world’s most renowned performing artists and educators. As a donor, you ensure their growth and gift them opportunities. And through the power of music and education, together, we uplift humanity.
