What It Means

For 30 years, our organization has brought people together through a common love of America’s greatest art form: jazz. But we can’t do it alone.

Your support matters. Last year, 406 Jazz for Young People on Tour concerts educated and inspired 60,900 students. Our Essentially Ellington program distributed 31,800 free scores to student ensembles across the country and abroad. And faraway fans viewed our live webcasts 330,000 times.

Help our community grow.
