The California Jazz
Foundation fulfills a critical need by assisting California’s jazz
musicians facing medical and/or financial crisis. Our difficult
economy has posed ever-increasing challenges for this community of
artists. Many older musicians often have no social security and are
either uninsured or underinsured; some see no residuals from important
work they did in their productive years. Younger musicians have
difficulty sustaining their careers in jazz due to the closing of jazz
venues and the way in which music is now marketed.
Please join us in
supporting these talented artists who have given us so much pleasure
over the years—often with so little reward. With your generosity, we
will always be here… to help.
