If you are a basic member, a donation of $30 or more will upgrade your membership to Sponsor; $80, to Patron; $180 or more, to Sustainer.

WHY DONATE?

The Board of Directors invites members who love this music to help us share it with others in our community. Consider renewing or upgrading your membership to Sponsor, Patron or Sustainer level.

Premium memberships and other donations help Tri-State Jazz Society meet operating expenses and to offer a full schedule of concerts year after year. World-class performers from New York, New Orleans, and Europe are only possible because of contributions from Sponsors, Patrons and Sustainers. We are also able to keep admission prices low and offer promotions, including first-timer discounts, to attract people who may not be familiar with traditional jazz.

RECOGNITION

Sponsors, Patrons and Sustainers are recognized in The Strutter and on the Tri-State Jazz Society website unless they ask to be omitted from the listings. The names of members who upgrade to Sponsor, Patron or Sustainer later in the membership year are added to the published lists in the following month.

BENEFITS

All members (basic and premium) will be admitted to regular concerts for half price (usually $10). Email distribution of the Strutter newsletter is included with all memberships.

Additional benefits are available for Sponsors, Patrons and Sustainers:

On request, printed versions of the Strutter will be delivered by mail. Email is the only option for basic members. If you are a basic member and would like Strutter delivery by mail, please consider upgrading to Sponsor by making a $30 donation.

Sponsors, Patrons and Sustainers are invited to an an annual thank-you reception.
