It is the mission of the Jazz Legacy Foundation to transform young lives through charitable support by way of educational scholarships, creative arts, leadership development, mentoring workshops, and community partnerships, all with the aspirations of enhancing the appreciation and preservation of the art of Jazz. We will also create and conduct workshops, mentoring programs with master musicians, and offer educational scholarships to further musical endeavors and development. We need your help to accomplish our goals, and we hope that you deem our efforts worthy of your donations, sponsorships, and support. (Abridged from Jazz Legacy Foundation's fundraising gala letter).
