Promoting everything jazz in Texas!

You'll find information about our website and how we serve Jazz Education and Educators in Texas through the various links up top.

Hello everyone and I hope that you are doing well,

The TJEA has established a fund to help jazz programs in schools effected by Hurricane Harvey. We need donations to help these programs to get swinging again soon! Let’s show what a tight community Texas Jazzers are! Go to TJEA.org to make your donation ASAP so we can get these funds to our colleagues and students in need!

Here is some quick information about the fund and the grants:

1. Each school requesting funds must fill out an application.
2. Applications will be accepted until November 1st and can be found at TJEA.org. Applications should be sent to Alex Parker at Alex_Parker@baylor.edu.
3. ALL SCHOOLS effected by the storm ARE eligible, even if they received a TJEA grant in the last three years.
4. The TJEA Board will create a committee to look over the forms. Board members may be on the committee.
5. Funds will be distributed by the committee.
6. Donations will be made by check or by credit card online.
7. ALL funds will be distributed to schools and jazz programs.
8. Any leftover funds that are not requested will be donated to Flood Relief organizations in the name of the TJEA.

Thank you!!

Your TJEA Board
