Get this! Did you know 8K people visit our site each month? If half of these clicked the donate button and gave just $5, we would earn $20K a month or $240K a year. With this money we could continue to support all the kids who want to attend Jazz Camp but can’t afford it AND pay for the entire Litchfield Jazz Festival line-up! Please help keep these programs alive.
