Many companies allow employees (and sometimes retirees, spouses, and directors) of the company to make a charitable contribution to a non-profit organization which is then matched by a corporate gift. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer and send it, completed and signed, with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to JFA may be doubled or possibly tripled!
Contact us by phone or use our online donation form to set up a monthly donation via credit card. You may also make an annual pledge over several years to help ensure JFA's stability.
A gift to JFA is an incredibly meaningful way to honor a loved one's memory. We will send a special letter notifying the family of the deceased. The amount of your donation will not be revealed. Make an "In Memory Of" donation online.
Make a donation in honor of a special occasion, whether it's a birthday, anniversary or holiday. A gift to JFA in honor of someone is a great way to show your love and respect. And you'll feel great about helping jazz and blues musicians in need. We will send a special letter notifying the person being honored of your tribute.
JFA seeks gifts to endow its ongoing activities, and we invite donors to meet with us to establish an endowment and review our greatest needs.
By donating appreciated property to JFA, you can receive a tax deduction for the current fair market value of the asset while avoiding capital-gains tax. You may also want to donate stocks that do not meet your criteria for social responsibility, which JFA can sell to support our general fund.
Include JFA in your will as a recipient of either a fixed amount or percentage of your estate.
"I cannot even imagine the world without jazz and the blues, and I cannot imagine turning our backs on the very people who gave their lives, their life experiences, and their music to us all these years, especially now when they need us most. The Jazz Foundation is saving the music."
