Resource description

By bringing out the "Human" in Humanitarianism, the Jazz for Peace Empowerment Grant Separates The Wheat from the Chaff in the world of Philanthropy by providingA Helpful Step Forward for our worlds most outstanding causes. For our Webinar Presentation of this Grant please visit

Our studies have found that there is both an abundance of 501-C3 non profits and other outstanding causes, and an equally confused donor base that has little or no idea how to tell one from another.

In order to address this issue, the Jazz for Peace Empowerment Grant provides all of the funds, staffing and expertise toput on a World Class Cultural Event "At No Cost to You!" to those deserving of far greater funding and recognition than the average charity and has so far given over 800 of these outstanding organizations a "Helpful Step Forward" which they would otherwise not be able to afford the cost and financial risk of nor provide the expertise to make successful.

The Jazz for Peace Empowerment Grant helps to Separate the Wheat from the Chaff by exposing to the public organizations that have real people, real Board members, real supporters and real volunteers who want to make a real difference as opposed to a fancy web site with minimal substance trying to use images and text to wrangle donations. Our events give the public a chance to meet the people who serve on boards rather than just sit on them along with founders, directors, staff, volunteers and many others associated with each outstanding cause we celebrate who are really trying to BE the change they want to see in the world.

In addition, by making this service a GRANT and not a "Fundraiser" we do NOT have to deduct all of our expenses first before giving you funds and are therefore able to give our recipients funds on a sliding scale upwards from the very first ticket sold along with numerous additional fundraising techniques and knowledge such as sponsorships, publicity and awareness etc. that we have learned along the way and are happy to share with you to take forward.This important element not only guarantees to raise money but also enables us to raise maximum funds for our recipients while at the same time providing all of the other equally important "Branches" of our Empowerment Tree ( for a sustainable future.Please take a look at this tree and decide if your organization is also like our previous recipients ( and in need of the funds, publicity and awareness, new friendships and partnerships, new sponsors, prestigious and celebrity supporters etc. that this Grant provides.If so then please feel free to apply for this acclaimed Grant that has been hailed as "The most significant cultural event of our time!" by supporters such as President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton, Senator McCain, Congressman Kucinich, Governor Shumlin, Mayor Bloomberg, Consumer Advocate Nader, Prime Minister Odinga (Africa), Labor Secretary Cintra (Brazil), and so many othersby simply clicking on this

Should your application be chosen we look forward to the opportunity to make this funding award every bit as positive and memorable an experience for you and your outstanding cause as it has been for our previous 800 recipients.However we should warn youthat due to the prestigious year long 10thAnniversary Celebration of our Historic United Nations Concert that attracted the attention of so many of these world leaders listed above and thereby started it all (click HERE for details), it is quite possible that our Empowerment Grant Award foryourorganization may actually EXCEED those expectations.
