A big THANK YOU to those of you who have already contributed to our COVID Relief Fund.
So far, we’ve raised $1,500 of our goal of $2,500 or more!
Can you help us reach our goal with any amount you can give? Please click here and choose “COVID-19 Relief Fund for Musicians" from the drop-down menu. All donations received through March 31st will be dedicated to these micro-grants.
Jazz Bridge needs YOU to help us raise$2,500 to match a foundation grant so we can award at least 10 “micro-grants” of $500 each to musicians struggling to hang on during the COVID pandemic. Grants will be distributed in April to mark Jazz Appreciation Month.
Our first round of grants this past November helped with housing, medical costs, food, utilities and other critical needs.
Jazz Bridge is stronger because of you!
Together, we can continue to help Greater Philadelphia Area jazz and blues musicians in need.
Thank you again for all your support!

In the decades that followed his early fame, he became a local institution, playing saxophone and flute on the streets, in subway concourses, and at clubs around Philadelphia. Mr. Lancaster fought publicly for the rights of Philadelphia's street musicians.)
