About the Jazz Foundation of America:
The Jazz Foundation of America (JFA) was established by a group of caring jazz enthusiasts to preserve the interests of an art Congress recently designated "a rare and valuable national treasure" -- jazz. By soliciting donations and sponsorships, the JFA promotes cultural and educational activities that build awareness of the music and of the musicians that make it. In an effort to support these musicians, the JFA operates the Jazz Musicians' Emergency Fund (JMEF). This fund assists struggling jazz artists, many of whom are getting older or sick, with medical, financial, and career development needs. They are masters in their fields, but without help, many would be homeless or unable to work. And that is a tragedy indeed. After all, they are the magicians who make the magic we call jazz.
