Jazz Leadership Society

Leadership comes in many forms, and one of the most effective ways to truly make a difference, is by example.

Please join the hundreds of individuals who have consistently stepped up through their extra generous financial support, to keep this vital cultural institution we all love and cherish, WBGO 88.3 FM and www.wbgo.org thriving and growing “for ears to come”.

WBGO’s Jazz Leadership Society is a community of like-minded individuals who believe in our mission and the impact they can directly have in ensuring this organization moves confidently and relevantly through our ever-shifting technological and social landscape.

They are united in the spirit of celebrating the full diaspora of musical forms born of the African American experience – honoring its rich history, while exploring its ever-evolving present, and guaranteeing its bright future.

If you value WBGO and feel it is worth your significant philanthropic support – gifts totaling $1,200+ per year, either via ongoing monthly contributions of $100+ or lump sum donations – then please join this special group whose individual and collective goal is to be certain WBGO will be here for you and yours, now, and for generations to come.

There are multiple levels of Jazz Leadership Society giving, including our Ambassador level for gifts totaling $2,000+, and our Champions Circle for annual gifts of $5,000+.

You can click here for more information on the different ways to give.

Special access and accessibility to the artists, hosts, and executive leadership that make WBGO the treasured broadcast entity it has been for 44 years and counting, is available exclusively to those who join the JLS.

This includes of course our groundbreaking partnership with the Yamaha Studio in New York City and our acclaimed Concert Series, now in its 8th Season. We have presented an impressive array of world-class artists in a unique and intimate setting. The extra value of this initiative is that all events are captured both on Video & Audio as content for WBGO to distribute across all our platforms: On-Air; our website; YouTube Channel; social media; etc.

As a JLS member, YOU get to be there in person to see and hear the music as it’s happening in the moment with an opportunity to meet the artists, hosts, and other individuals from Yamaha & WBGO who make this series possible.

Your generous and continued support truly means the world to us, as do you.

And we thank you.
