JASS will be holding its inaugural Benefit Gala in 24 November, 2017, with Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister for Foreign Affairs, as our Guest-of-Honour. The theme is "Ella 100, Jazz Forever!" This will mark the 100th anniversary of the Birth of the legendary vocalist, Ella Fitzgerald.

We seek your kind support for our gala. With your generous contributions, we hope to raise at least S$420,000 to meet the needs of JASS as Singapore's very first public charity dedicated to developing jazz education, excellence and outreach in Singapore, as well as strengthening cultural ties between Singapore and the rest of the world. Our mission is to spread the joy of jazz to all walks of life in Singapore and make Singapore a leading jazz city of the world.

We would like to appeal to you to purchase a table of 10 at the dinner or to make a direct donation. Donation tables include VIP Tables at $20,000, and tables at $15,000, $10,000 respectively with very limited individual seats available at various pricing. Contact us to find out more on purchasing a table or seat.

About the Charity

Jazz Association (Singapore), or JASS, was founded in September 2016 with the aim of promoting the participation, engagement, and excellence of jazz in Singapore. In March 2017, we were accorded charity status and subsequently attained IPC status in November 2018.

Our vision is to be a centre of excellence in jazz in Singapore, to bring the joy of jazz to people in Singapore from all walks of life and across diverse communities, and to make Singapore a leading global city of jazz.

Our mission is to play a strong part in lifting the Singapore jazz scene to new heights by:
1. Forming a core pool of established, professional-level local jazz musicians and facilitating continuing education in jazz
2. Leveraging jazz as a unifying force to promote interaction, cohesion and inclusiveness among our diverse communities in Singapore
3. Playing a major role in bridging the needs of the audience with those of the jazz practitioners and other arts groups' objectives
4. Making Singapore a nexus for collaborations between Singaporean and international jazz musicians
5. Developing Singapore into a vibrant city of jazz for Singaporeans, residents and visitors alike
6. Supporting eligible local jazz musicians impacted by crisis with short-term financial aid*

*In July 2020, we added a new mission pillar.
