HELP US FUNDRAISE
We would not be where we are today without public donations. None of what we do is possible without your help. Historic artefacts such as Sir John Dankworth’s piano and much of Humphrey Lyttelton’s heritage would have been lost forever. We actively increase accessibility to jazz music for all via free admission workshops, free admission events and provide study resources to students, researchers and musicians via our research and media centres.
We are a registered charity (charity No: 1167421) and our aim is 'to promote, preserve and celebrate the culture of jazz in all its forms'. We are all inclusive supporting music, art, film, dance, literature, poetry, heritage, photography... - and the list goes on. We hope to begin to cover this vast amount of ground with the below aims and objectives. We invite you to visit us, explore our website, subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on social media to keep up to date with how we continually meet these aims and to learn how your donation has affected our activities.
There are several routes to help us fundraise. The simplest way is to leave a donation via our secure PayPal 'Giving Fund' page. Just click on the 'Donate Now' button, you will be re-directed to our 'Giving Fund' page which will open in a new tab/window.
