Rick DellaRatta in concert

The Jazz for Peace Foundation (JFP) was formed after the artist Rick DellaRatta watched the horrific events of 9/11 from his rooftop a few blocks away from the twin towers and sought to make a positive contribution in the world. Jazz for Peace offers jazz benefit concerts to nonprofit organizations and good causes. Since 2002, JFP has given over 850 jazz benefit concerts both in the US and internationally.

Help JFP spread the word about these grant opportunities by maintaining the Facebook and Twitter sites with news that the grants administrator will send you automatically.

About JAZZ FOR PEACE

Mission Statement

Jazz For Peace is people helping people, advance to their highest potential. From promoting the use of Jazz as a universal language; to spreading peace through our "Jazz For Peace Concerts" worldwide. We are joining forces with multicultural musicians to spread peace, through the art of Jazz; and entering regions that are politically controversial. Jazz For Peace provides live concerts, video taping, hands on & online teaching; and musical instrument equipment to under privileged children worldwide. Jazz For Peace reinforces what history has proven, ... "Jazz creates a positive effect that transforms & unites people; thus transending the barriers of different cultures & beliefs."

Description

Rick DellaRatta and Jazz for Peace performed at the United Nations in New York on September 25, 2002. He led a band consisting of Israeli, Middle Eastern, European, Asian and American musicians in concert for an international audience in what is now considered "one of the most significant cultural events of our time!" This U.N. Concert has led to a benefit concert series that has gone on to raise funds, publicity and awareness for over 400 non-profit organizations as well as an Educational Program to bring jazz back into the schools and donate musical instruments to underprivileged children.

Over the past year Jazz for Peace has garnered support and praise from distinguished Americans such as Senator John McCain, Congressman Dennis Kucinich, activist Noam Chomsky, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and many more along with music lovers and humanitarians worldwide of all ages and nationalities!
