The California Jazz Foundation's (CJF) Financial Relief Fund aids California jazz musicians with financial relief. To qualify, you must be a musician with at least 5 years of California residency. You must provide documentation including a resume, discography, and copy of bills citing need for assistance. When financial assistance is provided by CJF, it is charitable in nature and, therefore, before seeking such assistance, an applicant is encouraged to investigate all other possible sources of public aid. All approved assistance is paid directly to a creditor/third party. At its sole discretion, CJF reserves the right to deny or approve financial assistance.
