The Chicago Tribune has this inspirational story of a funding model for jazz organizations that’s bearing all kinds of fruit.  Here’s the gist of it: “The ingenuity of this model is that any corporation or foundation in the partnership can contribute money to any particular jazz organization, to suit its own funding mandate. So if Boeing is impressed with the work of the AACM or Jazz Unites, as it has been, it can direct its cash to that organization—it has no obligation to conform to the wishes of other foundation members. If the Joyce Foundation sees particular merit in the Asian Improv aRts Midwest, which it does, it can write a check accordingly.” Though this is still in its infancy, its success could serve as a model for other cities too.
