Living Jazz Sponsors

Since 1984, Living Jazz has continued to work towards fulfilling its mission to empower children and adults, inspire creative growth, and unite diverse communities.

Our history is the unfolding story of vision-into-action many times over. The programs of Living Jazz are known not only for their artistic quality, but also for their commitment to build community based on diversity, inclusion and accessibility; the distinctive way in which they encourage and support artists of all skill levels; and the artistic and personal growth they foster in participants of all ages.

Throughout its history, Living Jazz has listened to what those in the community wanted and needed. It has surveyed existing programs and has worked toward designing and developing creative opportunities not currently accessible or available.

Over the years, Living Jazz has developed a reputation for designing and launching programs that go on to become Bay Area treasures, as well as for incubating programs to the point of maturity at which they successfully spin off to stand on their own, and continue to develop and grow independently.

Thank you to all our wonderful and generous funders, sponsors, individual contributors, and volunteers who believe in Living Jazz.
