Give Now to Jazz Education, and Have Your Gift DOUBLED!

Dear Jazz Fans:

Last year, jazz supporters like you made it possible for Monterey Jazz Festival to offer free skilled instruction and mentoring to thousands of deserving middle and high school students. Our nine Traveling Clinicians and 2012 Artist-in-Residence Ambrose Akinmusire gave over 100 free clinics at local schools, our three-day Next Generation Jazz Festival in April, and our two-week 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 free yearly iPhone/Android smartphone Apps. One of our 21-piece national high school Next Generation Jazz Orchestra members who toured Japan this year, Laila Smith, said: “The heaviest experience for me was being able to share music with the Japanese students. Where language failed as communication, music more than compensated.”

These are only a few of the many reasons why your financial contribution to Monterey Jazz Festival is one of the best ways to encourage and support thousands of young students around the United States.

Every dollar counts. This holiday season, 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 collective generosity of select individuals and 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. Click here to make a convenient online tax-deductible contribution or call 831-233-3711 to make a planned gift or gift-of-stock today.

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

Happy Holidays!
