The Bonaire Jazz Foundation is an initiative
of people from all walks of life who live on Bonaire and love Jazz in all
contemporary forms.The Bonaire Jazz Foundation started in 2005. The first
annual Jazz Festival was also organized in 2005. Since then we have had three
fantastic and unforgettable music events (see our reports on this website of
2005, 2006 and 2007)
Our main objective is to promote jazz
music on our island. This means we try to bring musicians and audience closer
together by making the art form jazz more accessible to the general public.
We also support young musicians with lessons and other facilities. Every year
we donate a percentage of our proceeds to music educational projects and social
centers on the island. We also want to provide "Jazz lovers" with information
on where to find good jazz on the island.
Without the financial support of our sponsors it
would be impossible to organize the Festival. Each year we are grateful that
they choose to contribute financially again.
Equally important is the time
and effort spent by several volunteers to make each upcoming Festival better
than the previous.
So if you feel inspired to donate cash or time please
contact the board of the Bonaire Jazz Foundation.
