Generous Sponsors of the Jazz Crawl for Charity
The donation from the Jazz Crawl is made possible thanks to our generous sponsors and volunteers. Just about all the money we raise comes from ticket sales and the purchase of ‘Lagniappe Tokens’. The tokens, which are actually Mardi Gras doubloons, are used as currency for the sponsored cuisine, spirits, artwork and raffle.
The Jazz Crawl is entirely volunteer-driven. All the profits are used to purchase the donated instruments, but we aren’t currently registered as an official nonprofit organization. Instead you could say we are something like a ‘nonprofit agent’. We build relationships with other nonprofits and schools that help us identify aspiring young students that could use some aid to expand their passion for music. A general donation is dedicated to one of our partnering schools or nonprofits and available for tax exemption.
