Jazz Humanities Education Endowment Fund

Endowment and bridge funding for staff salaries and for humanities programming.

JALC requests a $600,000 NEH challenge grant to create a $2 million endowment fund to support its humanities educational programming. This programming will expand considerably upon the fall 2004 opening of JALC's new home--Frederick P. Rose Hall, a 100,000 square-foot education, performance and broadcast facility located within the new Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle. While challenge funds are being raised, bridging funds will be used to create an ongoing professional development training program for school teachers, a new educational jazz performance program for school groups, to continue developing student and teacher resources to enhance JALC's new Jazz for Young People Curriculum, and to create publications and mount symposia that analyze the achievements of the inductees selected for the Jazz Hall of Fame that will be located within the new facility. Bridging funds will also support the hiring of a new Education Associate position to make this expanded programming possible.
