Donate $100, The Jazz Club Receives $200!
First and foremost, we say to our members and the broader jazz community STAY SAFE.
Last month, just hours before our first Main Stage performance, we were compelled by rapidly escalating health and safety concerns to cancel the final eight of our eleven major Sarasota Jazz Festival events. In the days that followed we canceled the balance of the Jazz Club season.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Our losses have been estimated at well over $100,000! That's about 25% of our annual budget. We are pursuing many options to recover those damages. Fortunately, the annual one day Giving Challenge presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County is scheduled for the end of April.
With your generous help we hope to raise $25,000. And we have help! The Patterson Foundation will provide a 1:1 match for all unique donations , up to $100 per donor, per organization. So, if we raise $12,500, the Patterson foundation will double it!
Click the Yellow Ad above from noon to noon on April 28-29.
The Jazz Club of Sarasota office in accordance with CDC recommendations and the Governor's Executive Order will be closed until further notice. We will be checking our e-mails and will respond ASAP. Thank You and Stay Safe.
The Jazz Club of Sarasota is dedicated to preserving and promoting jazz, America’s original musical art form.

This year the Club planned 80 performances in 54 ticketed and free events.
