Your Gift Makes a Difference!

We believe that music and arts education/experience should be available to everyone, and it is through your support we are able to continue to offer a high- quality music experience to children with financial need at both Litchfield Jazz Camp and at the Litchfield Jazz Festival.  Below, you will find information on the many different ways you can make a gift to Litchfield Performing Arts.

Litchfield Performing Arts, Inc. is entering it’s 35th year(!), and we are grateful for all of the ways you show your support for Litchfield Jazz Festival and Litchfield Jazz Camp, and especially appreciate all of you who have continued to support Litchfield Performing Arts’ charitable work in these leaner times. Money raised through our annual appeal is a critical part of our annual operating budget and scholarships would not be possible without it.

Together we’ve created a collaborative and diversified environment over our 21-year program life of Jazz Camp, and, thanks to your support, we have proudly welcomed all interested participants regardless of their financial situation. As programs and services for students with artistic talent suffer deeper cuts, our work becomes more essential to preserving jazz as an art form.

Your tax-deductible gift of any amount helps keep our programs alive. We invite your renewed support — please respond generously!

The Arthur J. Muir Scholarship Fund

The Arthur J. Muir Scholarship fund was established in 2017 after the passing of Litchfield Performing Arts Co-Founder, Arthur Muir.  This fund allows LPA to provide financial support to children demonstrating financial need to attend Litchfield Jazz Camp. Please click on the link below if you would like to make a gift specifically to this fund in Arthur’s memory.


Tax-Free IRA Gifts

If you are 70 ½ or older, you can make a rollover gift from your IRA, have the full amount go towards satisfying your mandatory minimum IRA distribution, and pay no income taxes on your contribution to us. It is called a “rollover” because the funds are “rolled over” directly to us, rather than to you. The total charitable rollovers in any taxable year cannot exceed $100,000.
