The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation is currently accepting applications for the 2010-2011 Community Partnership Grants cycle in the category of "Jazz Journey Presenting: Festivals and Concerts in Music and Performing Arts." This category provides support to nonprofit organizations that hire musicians and other performing artists for cultural events. The grant may only be applied to live public performance fees paid to musicians, dancers, actors and other onstage performers.
The grant may not be applied to fees paid to nonperforming artists, such as composers, choreographers or other artistic contributors. The grant may not be used for technical or other support personnel, equipment, rentals, facilities or other services. Commercial organizations and individuals are not eligible to apply.
Completed applications, including all required supplemental materials, must be received at NOJHF office (1205 N. Rampart St. New Orleans LA 70116) by 5 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 20. Faxed or e-mailed applications will not be accepted.
Please join the NOJHF e-mail list to be notified when applications are available in other categories. For more information, please call the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation at (504) 558-6100.
Since 1979, the Jazz & Heritage Foundation has reinvested the proceeds from Jazz Fest directly into the community — in the form of grants to arts and educational organizations — to support projects that reflect the Foundation's mission.
