We are happy to accept donations to be used specifically to enhance the National Jazz Festival experience for the students, educators, parents, and supporters that attend. Specifically in our inaugural year, we are hoping for support to kick-off a great new tradition that will lead to many great years of experiences and music for all involved.

Individuals donating $20 or more will be listed in our National Jazz Festival program as a “Supporter Of The National Jazz Festival”.  All donations will be gladly accepted and put to good use!

The National Jazz Festival has filed with the IRS for tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  The application has been submitted for 501(c)(3) approval and is pending with the IRS. We are expecting the determination letter imminently.  Upon approval donations will be tax-exempt.

Donations under $500 can be made by clicking on the DONATE button and a receipt will be issued by National Jazz Festival with a statement ‘an application was filed with the IRS for tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and that upon approval donations will be tax-exempt.’

For larger donations we can fundraise under the nonprofit banner of the Arts Council of Princeton, as our charitable fiscal sponsor. The Arts Council of Princeton will accept donations on behalf of the National Jazz Festival and issue a receipt under their nonprofit 501(c)(3) status. Checks should be made payable to Arts Council of Princeton and noted for National Jazz Festival.  Mail to:
