Today is #GivingTuesday, and the Nashville Jazz Workshop is kicking off its end-of-year Annual Fund Drive. The Nashville Jazz Workshop is participating in Giving Tuesday by encouraging all of our friends and supporters to “give your community the gift of jazz.”

It’s traditional for Thanksgiving to be followed by two days of sales, Black Fridayand Cyber Monday. Today, the Tuesday following, has been designated #GivingTuesday, an international day of giving.


If you’ve already made a gift this year, please accept our thanks. If you have not given yet or can give an additional end-of-year donation, Giving Tuesday is a great occasion!

The Nashville Jazz Workshop supports the jazz community, raising the profile of jazz locally and nationally. Through jazz education, it develops the next generation of jazz musicians and fans. The NJW is dedicated to enriching people’s lives and to the life of the community. Listen to what some of our supporters have to say:

“. . . the Nashville Jazz Workshop is the hub around which the jazz scene turns . . . Anyone that moves to town and wants to get involved in the jazz scene, I tell them to go there first.” – Annie Sellick

“ . . . the workshop has been very instrumental, no pun, in putting Nashville on the Jazz Map!” – Beegie Adair

“I’ve lived in Nashville for 5 years and went to a show earlier this month for the first time. I fell in love with jazz and this city all over again.” – C. Kendrick Watts, jazz fan

The Nashville Jazz Workshop depends on contributions from individuals for a major portion of its income. So far this year the Workshop has reached almost 75% of its annual fundraising goal. You can help reach the rest of the goal by donating on Giving Tuesday, sharing this email with your friends, and sharing the hashtag #GivingTuesday on social media!

And speaking of social media, you can donate to our campaign on Facebook and have your contribution matched dollar for dollar . . . click here for the Facebook campaign.

Thanks so much – remember, at the Nashville Jazz Workshop you can always see and hear your investment at work!
