When you make a tax deductible donation to The Jazz & Democracy Project® (J&D) you are:

Giving students a unique educational experience

  • Appreciation for American Classical Music: Jazz
  • A profound connection to and understanding of democratic principles, including civic participation
  • An opportunity to build elastic thinking often missing from school curricula

Giving local artists new opportunities to inspire

Jazz musicians need two things: gigs and an audience. J&D provides jazz musicians well paid gigs to play for students on Musician Day. This experience transforms the classroom into an intimate jazz venue, creating audience members of each and every J&D student.
