Donations to the Jazz Journalists Association are welcome, and since the JJA is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, donations are tax-deductible. Donations will be used to defray costs of the Jazz Awards event and to prepare for the industry-wide conference, "Jazz Media in Transition: Outlets and Audiences in the 21st Century," currently proposed and being planned for January 2010 at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Details on the conference will be forthcoming in late summer.
