GJF is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization committed to excellence in jazz at Garfield High School. All donations are tax deductible to the extent provided by law. Our tax ID number will be supplied upon receipt of a contribution.

Employer Match

Many local employers will match employee contributions to non profit corporations. Matching gifts are a great way to often double - possibly even triple gifts to the Garfield Jazz Foundation.

How to match gifts

Those who work for (or have retired from) one of the many companies that will match employee donations to GJF will simply need to contact their company's matching gift office (usually the HR department or division management, unless the company has a foundation or a philanthropy/community support office), request a matching gift form (this will help us properly process their donation), and send it with their donation. When we get the form, we will notify the employer.

Below you will find a list of known companies that could match gifts to GJF. If your company is not listed, ask in your Human Resources office. If your company matches gifts and is not listed, please contact us at
