president's message

Dear Friend,

The California Jazz Foundation fulfills a critical need by assisting California’s jazz musicians facing medical and/or financial crisis. Our difficult economy has posed ever-increasing challenges for this community of artists. Many older musicians often have no social security and are either uninsured or underinsured; some see no residuals from important work they did in their productive years. Younger musicians have difficulty sustaining their careers in jazz due to the closing of jazz venues and the way in which music is now marketed.

Please join us in supporting these talented artists who have given us so much pleasure over the years - often with so little reward. With your generosity, we will always be here… to help.

Thank you,

Edythe L. Bronston
Founder & President
