The Foundation uses the proceeds from Jazz Fest, and other revenues, for year-round activities in the areas of education, economic development and cultural enrichment. Education programs include the Don “Moose” Jamison Heritage School of Music, the Tom Dent Congo Square Lecture Series and the Class Got Brass competition. Economic Development initiatives include the Community Partnership Grants, the Sync Up entertainment industry conference and the Jazz & Heritage Talent Exchange web site.

The 15th Annual Jazz & Heritage Foundation Gala will be held April 25, 2013 at the New Orleans Hilton Riverside Hotel. The Gala is an evening of music, food and fun that directly supports the Don Jamison Heritage School of Music, a free music instruction program that reaches more than 85 students each week. This year’s theme is “Glass House Reunion,” and will feature Kermit Ruffins, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Grammy Award recipient, The Rebirth Brass Band. The Glass House was a tiny club on South Saratoga Street in New Orleans. The Rebirth Brass Band and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band played there every Monday night for several years, wailing right next to the dancers. The scene was joyous, gymnastic and wild. This year’s Gala revives that fun and excitement. Tickets are $500.00 and include access passes to all seven days of Jazz Fest. The Gala always sells out, so please visit www.jazzandheritage.org or call 504-558-6100 to get tickets or inquire about sponsorship opportunities.
