Jazz is a historically-rich form of music that marries both technical mastery and creative expression. It has helped shape not only other modern music genres, but arts & culture on a whole. Ensuring the longevity and proliferation of this beautiful art form is a core goal for the Jazz Association (Singapore).


We are grateful to our patrons, donors and supporters for providing the kind financial assistance needed to achieve the goals of Jazz Association (Singapore). Their support has helped new jazz musicians flourish, created a bigger audience base for the genre, and has built the foundations on which to position Singapore as a leading city for jazz music.


We would like to acknowledge and express our gratitude to our patrons, donors and supporters for their contributions to jazz in Singapore. 

We would like to thank the past and current supporters of the Jazz Association (Singapore)

Jazz Association (Singapore) is supported by the National  Arts Council under the Seed Grant Scheme for the period from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2021.  


In recognition of Jazz Association (Singapore)'s supporters who have made significant contributions in fundraising for JASS and contributed outstandingly to champion and elevate the jazz scene in Singapore.
