The Jazz & Heritage Music Relief Fund was created by the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation to support Louisiana's music community whose livelihoods have been adversely impacted by COVID-19. 

In the last two years, the Jazz & Heritage Foundation has provided relief funds of more than $2million dollars supporting musicians, music industry gig workers, Black Masking Indians and other  indigenous cultural practitioners.   We need your help to fund more as this pandemic continues to hit the music community very hard.

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation , the non-profit organization that owns the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell, has established the Jazz & Heritage Music Relief Fund – a statewide relief fund to support  Louisiana's music community who has lost income amid the COVID-19 pandemic.  This unprecedented crisis has led to the indefinite cancellation of gigs, event postponements, and venue closures around the world. It has left many Louisiana musicians and others who work in the music industry facing a total or near-total loss of income for the foreseeable future.
