Help us promote Jazz - join the Jazz Advocate Movement,,,,,,

Who we are and what we do:
     Jazz Advocate is a 501 c3 non-profit organization with the simple mandate of supporting local area jazz artists and using jazz as a tool to bring our community together.


     We need your financial support to carry our four areas of endeavor forward so we may accomplish our stated mandate.
1. We publish a website and newsletter as a free service to inform the public of jazz and community events.
 2. We produce a yearly jazz and peace festival as an annual coming together of Dayton area neighborhoods and communities to help promote harmony through live jazz.
3. We work with the Dayton School System to help promote WDPS 89.5-FM (all jazz, all the time) radio station and to help generate funds for their twenty-four hours/day programming.
4. We collaborate with many local organizations to use jazz as a tool to attract the public to their events by lining up and/or subsidizing jazz groups.

Readers can be Jazz Advocate members:
     If you're one of our regular readers and like to follow the local jazz scene, we ask you to become a Jazz Advocate regular member at $25.00/year or whatever you're comfortable with.  Basically regular membership pays for our website and newsletter Internet cost.

Passionate Jazz Fans can join our 100 Club:
(Our quality custom cap is from Price Stores)

     About a year ago I read an article in the Dayton Daily News about a new form of philanthropy called "Giving Circles.  Expanding upon this idea, Jazz Advocate started a 100 club to enable accomplishment of the four mandates listed above. 
     Our goal is to receive $100 yearly tax-deductible contributions to continue local jazz promotions from 100 fans who share our passion in keeping local jazz alive in the Dayton, Cincinnati and Columbus areas.  
     The grants from Montgomery County, which made possible our last three jazz festivals are no more; at least in the near term.  
     We need your support so, if you're like me and want to help keep Jazz alive, here's your chance, we ask you to become a Jazz Advocate 100 Club member at $100.00/year or greater size donation. 
     We need to generate $8,000.00 to $10,000.00 just to produce our 2012 Jazz & Peace Festival, please donate what you can.

Organization and business can be Jazz Advocate members:
     Your organization can become a Jazz Advocate support member and have a presence on our website and newsletters at $200.00/year.  We try to get your story across (with input from you) without being intrusive to our readers.
