It's time again for Jazz Outreach Initiative's annual "JOI of Giving" general funds campaign! This campaign sustains and grows our mission work as we serve the community and this truly American art form, jazz! Our goal this season of giving is $50,000.
When you entrust us with your "JOI of Giving" gift, you connect the language of music to the language of life for kids throughout our community in all age levels and economic environments. Any amount can truly "Make A Difference" in the lives of these young people, and some will have their lives profoundly changed through this music and the life skills we teach through it.
If you've donated in the past, we ask you to help us again. We can't reach deep into the heart of the community and address the needs of our population without you. Whether it's music and clinics from legendary musicians like Chris Botti, Branford Marsalis, Scotty Barnhart, and others we hosted in 2022 or our free summer program "Jammin' With JOI," our Las Vegas Youth Jazz Orchestra, "JOI in Schools" which sends professional mentor musicians into our local schools, or "Jazz Routes" which places an instrument and a year of free private lessons into the hands of a child, our general funds campaign covers these and so much more!
This year, Chef Gio Mauro and his amazing team at Monzu Italian Oven + Bar have generously sponsored ten $100 gift cards to their acclaimed Italian restaurant. Single donations are important, but when you break your donation into MONTHLY gifts and others do the same, that creates a steady stream of funds which allows us to better serve our students, schools, and the larger community. Please visit our website today and make your monthly minimum $20 gift and become a part of our story.
If you would like to meet in person to discuss an endowment, legacy, or other major gift, please reach out directly to Executive Director, Donny Thompson, at DonnyT@joi-lv.org. Corporate sponsors are encouraged as well and there's a separate link on our website which includes sponsorship tiers.
Thank you on behalf of thousands of young people we reach each year and our incredible team at Jazz Outreach Initiative for your generosity!
