Jazz for Peace™ Extends Grant Program to Include Artists and Musical Projects

For more than a decade, over 850 Outstanding Causes worldwide have benefited from the Jazz for Peace Foundation Empowerment Grant, which provides both a World Class Cultural Event in your city, on a date chosen by you, along with the staffing, event coordinating experience and expertise to help ”Grow your Empowerment Tree!”, leading them to historic events in the USA, Africa, India, Haiti, Brazil, Europe, Canada, Scandinavia, Nepal, Pakistan and Mexico.

Jazz for Peace

If you have an outstanding cause, or you are an artist or musical project, we have found that your road to sustainability includes all of the following:

1. We believe you need to expand your Donor and Support Base!

2. In addition, you need to thank, reward, honor and rejuvenate the supporters you already have.

3. You need more sponsors!

4. You could use some new and prestigious supporters.

5. You need more publicity and awareness.

6. And last but not least – you need to be better funded.

By assisting you in each of these areas Jazz for Peace grows what it calls an “Empowerment Tree” which provides a “Helpful Step Forward” for each grant recipient.
