  • $101 pays for hosting our original Inside the Scene video stories for one year on Vimeo
  • $55 pays for the research for an important news story that nobody else is reporting
  • $110 pays for one-quarter of the research, transcription, and writing of an interview or story about a local or Canadian jazz musician or project that the public wouldn’t otherwise learn about in-depth or at all
