The Dakota Foundation for Jazz Education

We create and support access to quality jazz education for Minnesota youth through multiple programs and partnerships

You can help Dakota Foundation for Jazz Education to raise $5000 to assure access to quality jazz education for Minnesota youth!

It costs $500 to send an artist/clinician into a school for three visits where they work with student bands, often in preparation for a performance. We've had to turn down schools in the past and are raising funds to increase our capacity to serve more schools--and hundreds more students--in the future. Our goal of $2500 for this program will provide an artist to work with the students in five additional schools.

Our fundraising goal includes an additional $2500 to fund five need-based scholarships, which will give students access to area summer jazz camps, many of which are only available to students on a fee bases. Each jazz camp will choose how to use the scholarships.

We are pleased to announce that DFJE will receive a match of $1,000 if we achieve our goal!
