Help keep the music alive! Each year AFCDJS appeals to jazz lovers everywhere to help “support the music.”  Corporate sponsors, individual musician/band and guest artist sponsors, education donors, and each jazz fan that attends a festival, monthly concert, or local jazz event help to support live music and to preserve this original American art form—traditional jazz. Donations and grants directed to the Youth & Education Program fund enable AFCDJS to assist and encourage young musicians to advance their Traditional Jazz skills, support music education in local high schools, and provide live Traditional Jazz concerts to schools and to the San Diego Community. There are many ways you can support AFCDJS, the most common being donations of cash and securities, but your support could also be to include AFCDJS in your will and bequest, or by becoming a project volunteer to help manage our Education programs for example.  Contact us at [email protected] with your ideas to “…help keep the music alive.”
