WELCOME ALL to the 2019 “We Always Swing”® Jazz Series 25th Anniversary “#GivingNeverSleeps” CoMoGives Campaign. With your participation and assistance, your favorite Jazz Series looks to have its most successful end-of-year campaign to date — and, likewise, its most fun-filled December effort so far! The 2019 campaign — a full-on, 31-day affair — begins Sunday, December 1, 12:00:01 a.m., and ends Tuesday — New Year’s Eve — December 31, 11:59:59 p.m.

Those of you who are “returning” participants will notice this year’s effort features some of our favorite CoMoGives “pieces”; however, to keep things interesting — and fun — we have added a few more “treats,” which are intended to keep all of us entertained, engaged and on our fundraising toes.

The thematic #GivingNeverSleeps, our spinoff “handle” of the organization’s ongoing “#JazzNeverSleeps,” is — as it must — present and accounted for. After all, during CoMoGives, we hope the “giving” — that’s everybody out there in the world — does not, in fact, rest for very long. Speaking factually, which seems to be in vogue, if not in dispute, these days — we at the Jazz Series can honestly say that the month-long CoMoGives effort truly does represent our most significant fundraising effort each year — and by far. If successful, hundreds of you, together, will generate 60 percent of this fiscal year’s entire Individual Donor goal, doing so in one month’s time. That’s remarkable; it’s no small feat for sure — and is not something we will ever take for granted. Thank You!

Every Jazz Series season is special. That’s what makes us so pleased that, since 1995, we’ve been part of and contributed to Central Missouri’s cultural landscape. However, the 2019/2020 endeavor denotes our 25th Anniversary. More than just a “round” number, it represents staying power, a sense of purpose and, more than anything, a sense of desire and responsibility to enhance, in positively fashion, the community. That said, even more significant is that YOU, our supporters, have been not only an integral piece of the Jazz Series puzzle — but rather THE PIECE of the puzzle. Without YOUR assistance, support and participation, we simply would not be in the midst of our 2019/2020, season-long Silver Anniversary Celebration. So, again, we say, unabashedly so, “Thank You!”

With that — and very much so your involvement — in mind, we embark on the 2019 Jazz Series-CoMoGives Campaign. The interlocking goals: Attract $60,000 in tax-deductible contributions, arriving from 500+ Individual Donors, each contributing $10 or more, that arrive at our door from across the country as well as from across the Show-Me State.

We will again feature the interactive Green Maps — one of the United States, the other of Missouri. We again ask our donors — YOU — to help us locate jazz supporters and /Jazz Series fans who live in every state of the nation, District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, as well as those who live within proximity of “The Jazz Capital of the World” — in each of Missouri’s 114 counties. Our webmaster has again “tweaked” the maps and added more first-time features. When we receive contributions from anywhere, the map begins to turn green. Each locale starts from a neutral color and moves from lighter-to-darker green in seven iterations. Want to see how each state or county is doing? Simply hover the cursor over the maps to see the number of contributors and the up-to-date amount contributed at each locale. We’re pleased this season to add key features to the maps that nationally and statewide in Missouri will show in real time the number of total donors and number of participating states and the number of participating counties and number of statewide donors.

The “mini-logo” represents not only our “World Headquarters” location, 21 No. Tenth St., in Columbia, but also reminds us that the Jazz Series continues to stand as one of fewer than 10 all-jazz, community-based projects in the country situated in a market such as Central Missouri. Similarly, we represent Missouri’s ONLY such jazz project outside of the state’s two major cities, thus giving us license to affectionately refer to Columbia as “The Jazz Capital of the World” — or quoting drummer Matt Wilson: “There’s more jazz per capita in Columbia, Mo., than anywhere else in the country.”

Don’t Believe Us? Lest there be any doubt, this #GivingNeverSleeps-CoMoGives, we showcase daily comments from musicians — each assigned and featured daily throughout the campaign’s 31 days, pairing them with brief thoughts from our daily “Anchor Donors,” board members and others. In fact, when you contribute, please feel free to add a comment of your own.

Donor Tickers Return! Atop the page here sits our two “Donor Tickers-In-Motion.” Each time someone makes a contribution from Missouri or elsewhere around the country, the respective “tickers” — in near-real time — will anonymously identify the location, date and amount of the contributions, adding the entries to the rotating tickers as they arrive. As the campaign rolls on, we look to turn both maps dark green — reiterating that fact that the Jazz Series stands as one of the country’s most well-respective jazz programs.

Please consider participating during the 2019 campaign. And, on behalf of the Jazz Series, “Thank You” for your generosity toward and support of the Campaign.
