Friends of Live Jazz and Beyond,

We hope you and your families are well and staying safe during these devastating times. As a result of the local economic impact of COVID-19, the Indianapolis Jazz Foundation, the Penrod Society, Owl Music Group and The Jazz Kitchen have joined forces to create a musicians relief fund to assist local jazz and related genre musicians who have had a direct loss of income through cancelled or rescheduled performances. 

Many of Indy’s finest performers rely on their weekly income, and unfortunately will be the last to receive government assistance. Our initial goal is to raise $50,000 which will be used exclusively for artist relief. This impact will be instrumental (no pun intended) in keeping the Indy jazz & music scene alive as we all strive to make it though these tough times TOGETHER.

A special thanks to the Penrod Society & the Indianapolis Jazz Foundation for matching the first $10,000 in donations. If you have interest as a company or organization in supporting this cause please reach out to Erica Stickler, IJF development director at

If you prefer to send your contribution via mail - please send to: Indianapolis Jazz Foundation, PO Box 20857, Indianapolis, IN 46220.
