Jazz Alliance of Mid-Michigan announces grants for jazz musicians

Posted

THURSDAY, April 2 — Jazz Alliance of Mid-Michigan, or JAMM, announced via a press release its plan to send eight $200 grants to Mid-Michigan jazz musicians:

“THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

GRANT DONATIONS KEEP POURING IN!

BECAUSE OF YOUR GENEROUS DONATIONS,

JAMM HAS DISTRIBUTED FIVE $200 GRANTS TO PROFESSIONAL MID-MICHIGAN JAZZ MUSICIANS.

JAMM NOW HAS EIGHT $200 GRANTS AVAILABLE.

It looks like these times of social distancing & venue closings are going to last longer than was initially thought. Live public space gathering of jazz musicians and their jazz-loving fans still remains impossible with an unclear timeline for resuming. Our beloved jazz musicians are suffering. JAMM is committed to its mission "to preserve and promote the tradition of Live Jazz across Mid-Michigan". Therefore, the Board of Directors of the Jazz Alliance of Mid-Michigan will continue indefinitely to raise funds and distribute $200 individual grants to Professional Mid-Michigan Jazz Musicians who are struggling financially because of cancelled gigs. These grants do not have to be repaid and any Professional Mid-Michigan Jazz Musician may apply.

***WE CONTINUE TO NEED YOUR DONATIONS***

PLEASE HELP JAMM DISTRIBUTE MORE GRANTS TO

PROFESSIONAL MID-MICHIGAN JAZZ MUSICIANS

TO DONATE IN ANY AMOUNT, PLEASE VISIT WWW.JAZZJAMM.COM

CHECKS may be made out and sent to:

JAMM, PO Box 1792, East Lansing, MI 48826

PLEASE HELP US SPREAD THE WORD TO PROFESSIONAL MID-MICHIGAN JAZZ MUSICIANS. Contact JAMM President, Lois Mummaw at jammprez@gmail.com or by text at (517) 242-1126 to access the confidential grant application process. Thank you for your consideration and unwavering support of JAMM and Live Jazz in Mid-Michigan!

Peace, Love and Long Live Live Jazz, Lois
