Year-End Appeal – Still Time!

December 23, 2016

Season’s Greetings from The National Jazz Museum in Harlem!

This has been an exciting year for The National Jazz Museum in Harlem, and we would like to thank all who have contributed to its success.  We also ask at this time for your continued financial support in our year end appeal. We successfully moved into a new home in a brand new building with specially designed space to meet our needs on the ground floor of 58 West 129th Street, and reopened with a wonderful exhibit, “Vibrations”, on Harlem’s central role in the development and global expansion of jazz which received wide critical acclaim.  We’ve hosted major programs attended by representatives of the Smithsonian Institution and the United Nations. We’ve produced sold-out shows, welcomed GRAMMY-winning musicians to our stage, reached more city school children and seniors, enhanced our presence in the Harlem community, and released in partnership with Apple the first recording from our fabled Savory Collection with more releases soon to follow.

While we are proud and excited to report our progress to you, we know that we have much more work to do. Chief among those is our commitment to building a permanent home for jazz in Harlem, and we work every day to make that vision a reality. And of course, we want to continue to provide the public with high-quality programs, free of charge, and to expand the range of our education and outreach programming initiatives, none of which is possible without your continued support. We have come so far in the last few years, and we eagerly look forward to the future. Indeed, there has never been a better time to be associated with The National Jazz Museum in Harlem

At the same time, we must prepare ourselves for what may be uncertain. In addition to the support of our Board of Trustees and friends, we rely, as many cultural organizations do, on support from foundations, corporations, and other institutions, as well as governmental grants. Such grants may now be even more challenging.  We therefore look to you to help ensure our future.

Please consider giving a tax-deductible year-end donation to The National Jazz Museum in Harlem and help us continue to fulfill our mission of preserving, promoting and presenting jazz by inspiring knowledge, appreciation and the celebration of jazz locally, nationally and internationally.
