LIVING JAZZ NEEDS YOUR FINANCIAL HELP TO SURVIVE
Since 1984, Living Jazz has designed and launched a steady stream of successful programs that have helped shape the Bay Area's music scene, impacting the lives of over 3,500 people annually through music. In its 36 year run, Living Jazz has never faced a deficit - until COVID-19. This unprecedented pandemic has put a temporary halt on our programming, and as a result, our revenue.
This virus is impacting all of us. The way we work, the way our children learn and play, the way we communicate, and the way we connect as a community. Living Jazz has always been 100% committed to our mission of Transforming Lives Through Music. Our commitment has only strengthened as we recognize the profound need for the arts during this time of isolation and unease. However, we cannot fulfill our mission without your help.
COVID-19 is one of the biggest economic devastations in our lifetime.
Our goal is to raise $100,000 by May 17, 2020 through our Play It Forward Fundraising Campaign.
Your donation today will help Living Jazz continue its mission of Transforming Lives Through Music and produce the programs our community relies on for another 36 years and beyond!
