By making a tax deductible contribution to the Bakersfield College Jazz Studies Program you can put instruments in the hands of students, provide music scholarships, bring world-class visiting artists to our campus for workshops and performances, offset the ongoing cost of equipment repairs, and help cover travel expenses to send our students to prestigious jazz festivals and conferences.

Best of all, your support helps to nurture and develop local culture by providing positive learning experiences for students who will one day be the performers, music educators, and cultural leaders in our community.
