Jazz Bridge Microgrants – Phase I
Thank you to everyone who requested an application to the Jazz Bridge Microgrants. Thanks to a recent foundation grant and the generosity of our supporters, we were able to offer 10 $500 grants to Greater Philadelphia Jazz and Blues musicians who have lost income due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
These funds will assist these artists with rent/mortgage, utilities, food, healthcare and basic daily needs. Most who applied were not known to Jazz Bridge except on a stage and had not received any help from us in the past.
Plans for Phase 2 of Jazz Bridge COVID19 Micro-grant Program are in the works after the new year. All of us at Jazz Bridge are happy to be there in a time of greater need, especially now.
