Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
Stanford Jazz Workshop offers three main programs to educate and inspire by bringing world-class jazz artists to the Bay Area each summer to teach and perform. This includes an annual all-ages Jazz Residency, a summer Jazz Camp for young people aged twelve to seventeen, and the annual Stanford Jazz Festival, which in 2012 attracted more than 9,000 attendees to thirty-five concerts. The two weeks of camp and one-week Residency served 662 participants, with scholarships available to approximately 15 percent of the student body. Beyond the Stanford campus, Stanford Jazz Workshop developed the Community Jazz Partnership to bring its faculty in to local classrooms at five schools. A renewal grant would support the organization’s goals to strengthen its relationship with Stanford University, increase year-round revenue, and make necessary infrastructure enhancements to achieve greater organizational stability.

Stanford Jazz Workshop offers three main programs to educate and inspire by bringing world-class jazz artists to the Bay Area each summer to teach and perform. Offerings include an annual all-ages Jazz Residency, a summer Jazz Camp for young people aged 12 to 17, and the annual Stanford Jazz Festival. The two-week camp and one-week Residency served nearly 700 participants, with scholarships available to approximately 15 percent of the student body. Financial difficulties in 2014 led the organization to focus its programming and fundraising for maximum impact, which resulted in a modest surplus in 2015. A renewal grant will support its goals to strengthen its organizational capacity, staff structure, and fundraising functions.
