Explain the Jazz Bakery's non-profit status
The Jazz Bakery has been established as a 501(c) 3 since its inception in 1992. For 20 years we have fulfilled our major mission: To cultivate a future audience both young and old for the jazz art form; To present this art form in a concert setting most favorable to both artist and audience, without interruption of drink service or chatter -- totally up-close and personal in the most intimate of settings.
What are my options to make a tax-deductible donation?
- The Jazz Bakery welcomes any and all support. Payment can be made by clicking "Support Us" on our navigation menu, and can be made by Paypal, credit card or check.
- Matching and Challenge Grant Contributions - The Jazz Bakery has a number of significant challenge and matching grants pledged: the Herb Alpert Foundation, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, and the California Community Foundation, among others. We urgently need your financial support to fulfill the terms of these grants. Your gift, whatever its size, can mean twofold or more to us!
- Your company's matching grant program-- the Jazz Bakery is an ideal and most appreciative non-profit candidate for your company's matching grant. Please contact your company for information.
- Virtual "Wall of Fame" Plaques-- Endow a Jazz Bakery Plaque in honor of your favorite player or person for $250. Your plaque, acknowledging you and your honoree, will be permanently displayed on this site, and also, eventually on the wall of the new Jazz Bakery. You’ll be in great company.
What happened to my plaque?
All plaques are now virtual. We value your contributions and your plaques will continue to be viewed on our website. Stay tuned for new opportunities to honor your friends, family and favorite musicians at our new building. And of course the old plaques will be installed on a prominent wall and will be a permanent part of the new Jazz Bakery building once it has been built.
