Why your donation matters
OttawaJazzScene.ca does not receive any government funding or grants. Nor do we work for hire for the musicians and venues we report about. Because we receive donations from a broad base of readers with many jazz interests, we can provide you with in-depth, fair, and unbiased reporting.
Your donation of any amount supports reporting that puts our readers and jazz fans first.
Why readers are supporting OttawaJazzScene.ca now
For too long, the Ottawa jazz scene has been operating largely under the radar, and yet, talents abound. Thank you for making all this rich cultural asset available to all.
