The California Jazz Foundation is a charitable, nonprofit organization created to aid and assist California jazz musicians in financial or medical crisis. Established in 2006, the Foundation was formed to fulfill an unmet critical need to help these talented artists who have given us so much pleasure over the years – often with so little reward.

The California Jazz Foundation is 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.

TESTIMONIALS

I want to thank you for the support CJF has given me through this dark period of my life. Your support shined a light on my recovery which I will not forget.

KEVIN "BRANDINO" BRANDON
Bassist

My heartfelt thanks are simply not enough. The California Jazz Foundation quite literally kept me going as I recovered from cancer. These angels of music helped me with their gracious generosity. I am forever in their debt and will do whatever I can to give back to the next musician who is in need.

CHERYL BENTYNE
Jazz Vocalist

You made me proud to call myself a jazz musician because your efforts demonstrate a love, respect, and genuine concern for us I did not know existed. You allowed me to endure the healing process with courage and dignity.

SANDRA BOOKER
Jazz Vocalist

We are proud to report that since our founding in 2006, we have accomplished a great deal and touched the lives of countless California jazz musicians. The many services we've provided include arranging for desperately needed dental work, in-home nursing care, transportation to physical therapy, MRI's, discount prescriptions, hearing examinations, housing relocation, rent and utility payments and instrument replacement.

 

I am very happy to serve on the Advisory Board and to support the California Jazz Foundation. This group is strongly committed to helping jazz musicians in crisis. Their dedication to assisting those who have given so much is deeply appreciated.

By some miracle, I was put in touch with the California Jazz Foundation, and they generously sprang to my rescue... They have enabled many of us to go on, doing what we believe in and spreading music that brings joy to millions!
