INVEST IN JAZZ IN THE VALLEY
When you support JazzFresno, you are doing more than just making a donation. You are making an investment. Your investment allows us the resources to ensure that jazz continues to flourish in the Central Valley. It allows us to support jazz education for both students and educators, provide concerts and events that entertain as well as enhance jazz appreciation, and work with other community organizations to ensure a vibrant jazz community.
As with any investment, of course, you expect a return. The return on this investment, though, is not in monetary reward, but in knowing that you are helping to lay the groundwork for a continued Valley landscape rich in jazz. You will see it in our programs; you will see it in our concerts, member events and workshops. You will see it in your community!
Please consider an investment in JazzFresno. If you can afford a minimum of $5 per month, you can become a sustaining investor. Or, if you would prefer to make a lump-sum donation, great! No matter your level of support, every investor in JazzFresno receives:
- Discounted tickets to JazzFresno Events

INVEST IN YOUTH JAZZ EDUCATION
JazzFresno is fortunate to serve as the fiscal sponsor for two projects: Milestones Youth Jazz Workshop and We Got the Beat Youth Percussion Band. What this means is that, while these groups are responsible for raising their own funds, being under the JazzFresno banner allows us to accept donations on their behalf. These are truly one-of-a-kind programs that are available to give Central Valley kids opportunities on par with those from large urban areas.
Milestones Youth Jazz Workshop
Milestones Youth Jazz Workshop offers jazz performance and education opportunities to kids in California’s Central San Joaquin Valley. Any young musician in the upper elementary grades through high school is invited to participate. Milestones offers school-year programs, a summer jazz camp, and special events and concerts.
We Got the Beat
We Got the Beat is a fun, interactive, hands-on, musical experience for students in 2nd to 8th grade from the greater Fresno/Clovis Metropolitan area. Lead by local musician and educator, Brenda Myers, WGTB is made up of three distinct programs: Adventures in Drumming, Summer Drum Camp, and We Got The Beat Youth Percussion Band.
