Help us Deliver One more round!
“Microgrants” to help jazz and blues musicians!
Right before Thanksgiving, Jazz Bridge was able to award 12 “microgrants” of $500 each to musicians struggling to hang on during the COVID pandemic. These grants helped with housing, medical costs, food, utilities and other critical needs. We were able to offer these grants thanks to donors like you, a generous grant from a private family foundation, and the Monnette Sudler Fund for women jazz performers.

Jazz Bridge plans to issue another round of grants in April for Jazz Appreciation Month. Please help us make these funds go further by making a contribution now. 

Please go to https://www.jazzbridge.org/donate-now/ and choose “COVID-19 Relief Fund for Musicians" from the drop-down menu. All donations received through March 15th will be dedicated to these microgrants.  

We at Jazz Bridge depend on you! Together, we can continue to support greater Philadelphia area jazz and blues musicians when they are in crisis.
