The Indianapolis Jazz Foundation

The Indianapolis Jazz Foundation is dedicated to assuring the continued growth and development of jazz and jazz education in Indianapolis and its surrounding communities.  As part of it’s mission, the Indianapolis Jazz Foundation initiates programs that nurture and promote the understanding and appreciation of jazz and its heritage, provides leadership for education outreach programs, assists teachers and practitioners with information and resources, and takes an active part in organizing clinics and symposiums at local and regional levels.

The Indianapolis Jazz Foundation believes strongly in the future of jazz, and realizes the future lies in the young students who we reach out to through performances and educational programs.  The Foundation produces inspirational performances, clinics and workshops in the Indianapolis and surrounding school systems.

We wish to acknowledge and thank Lilly Endowment for their funding in support of our educational initiatives.  Without their support, many of our programs would not be possible.
