Monterey County Gives! begins November 12 and ends at midnight on December 31 and will match your gift up to 15%. Thank you for believing in the value of creating opportunities that connect today’s youth to jazz. Our work would not be possible without your support.

Monterey County Gives! is made possible by the Monterey County Weekly’s Community Fund at the Community Foundation for County.


Monterey Jazz Festival’s 2015 Artist-in-Residence, Wynton Marsalis, once said that “jazz music can connect us to our earlier selves and to our better selves-to-come. It can remind us of where we fit on the time line of human achievement, an ultimate value of art.”

The vision of Monterey Jazz Festival is to enrich life through jazz. We know you share this vision, as you have dedicated your time each September to celebrate the joy of music and the community it creates. With your help we can be a part of the crusade that ensures music, and jazz, is made available to all young people.

Since 1971, the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra has featured top high school musicians at the Monterey Jazz Festival, giving a career-launching boost for many students. Some of these now-famous players include Patrice Rushen, Ted Nash, Murray Low, Benny Green, Joshua Redman, Ambrose Akinmusire, and many others.
