RECOMMENDED DONATIONS FOR VJC ONLINE PARTICIPATION
The VJC will not require a fee for participation in its virtual ensembles or workshops. But given the increased needs of arts organizations and charitable outreach groups during this time of pandemic, we respectfully request that VJC enrollees—or, more specifically, their parents or guardians—make some form of direct donation to a preferred partner (listed below). We would consider any such donation, even a very modest one, as a sufficient alternative to a registration charge for VJC Online participation. The recommended options for consideration are:
Music Serving the Word Ministries, the parent organization to the Valley Jazz Cooperative, has had a fruitful partnership with the Changing Lives Center for years, providing Ministry resources and personnel to assist with worship there. Donations are tax-deductible, as the CLC (through its parent organization, the Phoenix Rescue Mission) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
MSW Ministries has also had a long-standing relationship with Teen Challenge of Arizona, once again offering Ministry resources and personnel to assist with worship there. Donations are tax-deductible, as TCAZ is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
The first performances of the East Valley Jazz Cooperative (May 2016) and the West Valley Jazz Cooperative (May 2017) were each held at The Nash. More VJC performances have taken place there than at any other venue. As such, the VJC enthusiastically supports this venerable performance space. Donations are tax-deductible, as The Nash (through its parent organization, Jazz in AZ) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
MSW Ministries is an inter-denominational organization that promotes the unity found in Christ. Now host to more than a half-dozen ministry outreaches, including the Valley Jazz Cooperative, MSW Ministries originally began as Music Serving The Word, and has been providing resources and support to pastors, worships leaders, and musicians for more than 15 years. Donations are tax-deductible, as the VJC (through its parent organization, MSW Ministries) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Thank you very much for your consideration and, if able to do so, for supporting one of these worthy causes.
