WHO WE ARE


EVOLUTION OF A DREAM

ABOUT US
The California Jazz Foundation is a nonprofit organization created to aid and assist California jazz musicians in crisis. We are committed to providing access to quality social and economic services for all eligible applicants. We do so through a team of caring, knowledgeable professionals in collaboration with community partners.

WHAT WE DO
Since its founding in 2006, CJF has touched the lives of countless jazz musicians, providing rent and mortgage payments, housing relocation, arranging for medical and dental care, in-home nursing, discount prescriptions, and generally helping with emergencies as they arise.

We have established a growing network of medical professionals in every discipline, ready to provide essential healthcare services to qualified recipients on a sliding-scale basis.

WHAT WE OFFER

  • Financial assistance (grants paid on behalf of applicants to third parties)
  • Referrals to regional service agencies
  • Access to additional resources
  • Home visits and other support services

The California Jazz Foundation is also committed to raising musicians’ awareness of the importance of prevention and early treatment of disease through free public education and community outreach programs.

JOIN NOW
As a charitable nonprofit organization, the California Jazz Foundation relies on membership and support not only from jazz lovers but all those who value the arts! Your annual membership allows us to continue helping California’s jazz musicians in time of need. Members are entitled to discounts at select businesses and performance venues throughout the state.
