Dear Jazz Fans:

Together, we have reached a major milestone in providing 40 years of life-changing jazz education programs to thousands of students from coast to coast. These programs help the Monterey Jazz Festival preserve the legacy of jazz and expand the boundaries of and opportunities to experience jazz across all audiences.

Last year, jazz supporters like you made it possible for us to offer free clinics to hundreds of deserving young musicians with two-time GRAMMY nominee, saxophonist and 2011 Monterey Jazz Festival Artist-In-Residence, Joshua Redman during our three-day Next Generation Jazz Festival in April and our two-week intensive Summer Jazz Camp in June. To broaden the reach of our programs and deepen the learning experience for all students, we have leveraged the use of cutting-edge technology by making our Digital Music Education Project available online at no cost and in our new free iPhone/Android smartphone Apps. One of our 21-piece national high school Next Generation Jazz Orchestra members who toured the West Coast this year said, “Everything was amazing and a fun learning experience!” These are only a few of the many reasons why your financial contribution to the Monterey Jazz Festival is one of the best ways to encourage and support thousands of young students around the United States.

Every gift counts. This holiday, give to our life-changing jazz education programs and your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar, having twice the impact in our efforts to ensure the future of jazz.

Through the Jazz Ambassadors’ Challenge and select grantors, gifts received between now and December 31 will be matched up to $50,000. Please don’t delay! This matching gift challenge will be over soon.

Thank you very much for considering this timely request and for giving as generously and as often as you can.

Happy Holidays!
