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.

We appreciate the generous support of our Charleston Jazz Academy Founders Circle members.
