In March of 2020, it was evident the COVID-19 Pandemic would be devastating to many of the local Austin jazz musicians who lost significant gig income. The Austin Jazz Society formed a committee to launch a fundraising campaign to help the most vulnerable musicians. AJS seeded the fund with $5,000 and the Austin area jazz community responded. Grants started flowing in early April. Through June of 2021, this project raised $144,000+ benefiting over 110 individual local jazz musicians.Project Safety Net will remain a significant ongoing initiative of the society to help support local jazz musicians in need.
The Austin Jazz Society believes in the bright future of Jazz. This is why our vision is always focused on education. Over the past years we have supported several youth jazz education projects. Our long term goal is to put together a youth big band that someday may be able to play in the famed Essentially Ellington Competition. We want to provide the opportunity and the experience for our greater Austin area youth.
In December 2021 the Austin Jazz Society received a very special grant from the Frank J. Indihar, M.D. Advised Fund of the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation. As a result, AJS has set up a separate fund, which we have named the Austin Jazz Society “Enhanced Opportunity Fund”. This fund will be used exclusively to promote increased employment opportunities for our local jazz musicians while growing audiences that will support the musicians, long term.
