Your best JEN Conference starts with your contribution today!


Who’s ready for Orlando??

As we gear up for the 14th Annual JEN Conference and JENerations Jazz Festival in January, there is so much to be excited for – the fully booked and beautiful Omni Orlando Resort location, the return of late-night jams, the amazing professional performances, reconnecting with peers and colleagues, and developing the next generation of jazz standard-bearers.

This Fall, we have a goal of raising $25,000 to make this the best JEN Conference yet for you and the thousands of expected attendees flocking to central Florida! How will your gift make that happen? Here are a few examples–

  • $25-$100 contributes to creating the beautiful guidebook
  • $250 helps discount registrations for student ensembles
  • $500 ensures the best backline and equipment for each performance and clinic
  • $1000 fully funds a participant in either the Sisters In Jazz or Young Composers Showcase programs

Hear directly from past Conference participants how your giving influences their artistry and careers:

Any and every gift collectively enhances the JEN experience for everyone and your support gets us there! As a token of our gratitude for your generosity, every contributor is invited to our first ever Donor Appreciation Event on Friday, January 6 ahead of the Benefit Concert. Join us as we recognize the people who create lasting continuity and community for the Jazz Education Network which includes you!
