San Jose Jazz Society presents low-cost or free access to world-class jazz for more than 60,000 people each year. Best known for its three-day summer festival that attracts 40,000 people, San Jose Jazz Society also presents weekly jazz concerts at venues throughout downtown San Jose; a winter jazz festival; and a variety of education programs for youth. Renewed funding would enable the organization to implement its recently completed strategic plan that focuses on aligning its business model around its summer festival and ensuring its programs are self-sustaining. It would also refresh its brand ahead of its twenty-fifth anniversary celebration in 2014.
