Eric Stanley visited two Richmond schools as part of his JAMinc performance.
To our JAMinc family …
On behalf of our board of directors, a sincere thank you for supporting our efforts in 2019, including our seven live In Your Ear studio concerts, our partnership with VCU’s ICA Theater presenting Rex Richardson, our free screening of the documentary “Fiddlin'” at the Byrd Theater, another epic Scott Street Five String Finals youth banjo competition and our 15th year of partnering on school outreach with the Richmond Folk Festival.
JAMinc is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. We provide in-school concerts to public and private schools, many of which do not have the resources to bring music of this quality to their students. Our In Your Ear concert series that enables these appearances to happen, normally loses money after paying the performers, sound production staff, announcements and taxes. We have no paid staff or offices. All the assistants and board members volunteer their time and funds to make this work. Unfortunately, ticket fees, grants and sponsorships do not adequately cover our costs.
We understand that you’re likely getting numerous requests for contributions at this time of year, but we could really use your help. Donations have the potential of tax savings. If you are over 70½ or are already taking MRDs (minimally required distributions) we can provide information about decreasing your tax burden while benefiting JAMinc. In addition, we promise that we will not clog up your mailboxes with solicitations or ever sell email addresses or contact information. All of us at JAMinc truly appreciate your participation and wish you a meaningful and musical holiday season.
Tim Timberlake, President
