Background:

As a revered presence in our city, The Jazz Exchange builds on a rich history of celebrating jazz excellence. Our events, spanning throughout the year, have garnered acclaim, both nationally and internationally, for bringing outstanding jazz performances to the border region. The legacy of our commitment to education shines through initiatives that promote jazz music and cultural development in the fine arts. Furthermore, our support for local artists and businesses underscores our commitment to fostering a thriving and interconnected community.

Charitable purpose of the fund: 

The Jazz Exchange tackles the current crisis in arts education by bridging gaps and enhancing accessibility for families in need and schools in our most economically challenged communities. Beyond teaching musicianship and the American Art Form, which we all know as Jazz, The Jazz Exchange goes above and beyond, granting students a distinctive artistic advantage. Our proven programs and world-class education not only nurture musicians but also cultivate community leaders and global citizens. Jazz, in our view, serves as the ideal platform for students, professionals, and audiences to collaborate, listen, and support each other, fostering the creation of resilient communities.
