Your contribution helps us bridge the arts gap so that more children have access to top-quality music instruction.
When you give to JAZZ HOUSE KiDS, you can see your generosity at work. It’s right there in our colorful Jazz House, in our schools, at rousing performances by emerging musicians, and at our myriad of year-round activities (and we invite you to visit any and all of the above!).
Our mission couldn’t have become reality—and in the process, given thousands of children the artistic edge—without donations from people like you!
When you give to Jazz House Kids, you swing open a door to a life enriched by music.
A First-time Grant From The Prestigious HERB ALPERT FOUNDATION
JAZZ HOUSE KiDS is thrilled to announce we have been awarded a first-time grant from the prestigious HERB ALPERT FOUNDATION!
Through the foundation, legendary trumpeter and A&M Records co-founder and National Medal of Arts recipient Herb Alpert and his wife, vocalist Lani Hall, generously support organizations that promote compassion and creativity. The Foundation is especially committed to jazz education, and we could not be more honored by their support and recognition of our mission in action.
“The Herb Alpert Foundation envisions a world where all people are blessed with opportunities that allow them to reach their potential and lead productive and fulfilling lives. Built on a constantly evolving tradition, Jazz is a powerful form of musical expression that should be nurtured and supported for the benefit of future generations. Toward that goal, the Foundation aims to help educate children about the beauty of this uniquely American art form.” – Herb Alpert Foundation
The Herb Alpert Foundation has pledged $100,000 as a dollar-for-dollar match for new or increased gifts to JAZZ HOUSE KiDS. This is an unprecedented opportunity for us, especially at this time, and an ideal way for contributors to double their impact during our greatest time of need. I want to thank our many early donors for their generous contributions. Because of you, we have raised just over $50,000 toward meeting this challenge!
