Thank you for your interest in supporting the performance and education programs offered by Charleston Jazz. We currently offer two primary ways for you to provide financial support:

Jazz Performance Fund

Your donation to the Charleston Jazz Performance Fund supports all of our jazz performance programming and general operating expenses. This fund supports the Charleston Jazz Orchestra, the Charleston Jazz Festival, and all jazz performances we offer throughout the year. Your contribution allows us to produce a wide range of concerts and events that support musicians, delight jazz enthusiasts, and celebrate our city’s rich cultural heritage in jazz.


Jazz Academy Founders Circle Campaign

The Jazz Academy Founders Circle Campaign provides the capital and operational funding needed for the creation of our new Charleston Jazz Academy located on West Montague Avenue in North Charleston. Funds from this campaign will also provide multi-year music scholarships for over 100 students in need of financial assistance as they develop and explore their talent in music. The scholarships will cultivate talent found in underprivileged communities throughout the Lowcountry and will support the development of ten practice rooms, two large band rooms and a student lounge.
