Thank you for considering a gift to support JAM's non-profit mission to build community through the media arts.

Support JAM


Good morning from JAM!

If your in-box looks like mine this morning on Giving Tuesday, you're being bombarded with opportunities to give charitably to many worthy causes. On behalf of our dedicated crew at Junction Arts & Media, I hope you will consider a gift to support our work as the Upper Valley's only non-profit media organization that builds local community through the media arts.

Thanks to an anonymous community member who values JAM's work supporting transparency in local government through neutral, no-spin media coverage and remote meeting access, your gift will be matched 1:1. Every dollar you give will be doubled! Further, your gift to JAM goes far beyond – uplifting the myriad of Upper Valley non-profit, school, and municipal partners whose work we amplify by helping tell their stories through podcasting, video production, and media education.

It's been a year of extraordinary transformation here. We've expanded our Media Education programs to six weeks of media arts camps, after-school programs, and year-round media workshops for adults. We have produced nearly 600 hours (and counting) of local government meetings and community events, such as Lebanon's first Juneteenth celebration, Vital Communities' Housing Summit, Cartoon Studies School's "Freedom & Unity" launch, JAG's Juke Joint, and a local Agroforestry tour. More than 50 local sources, such as the Dickey Center at Dartmouth, the Hartford Historical Society, and Senior Solutions, have contributed 650 hours of on-air and streaming content, expressing our community's unique sense of place. And we've created a welcoming new home base at the Briggs Opera House and downstairs in our JAM space, a versatile media lab and venue where we nurture community live-streamed events, media exhibits, scriptwriting and storytelling groups, and any projects YOU can imagine to bring us together through media arts.

While "the media" has earned blame for sowing mistrust, we here at JAM are committed to fostering media literacy for an empowered citizenry and the survival of our democracy. We believe that creativity in the media arts has the power to awaken wonder, help us bear witness to each other, and bring us together across lines of difference. We are determined to grow and change with evolving media formats to connect the Upper Valley in all of its digital neighborhoods.

JAM is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that depends upon community support. Thank you for considering a gift this year, and please come see us at JAM soon!

Kind regards,

Samantha Davidson Green
