Would you like more funding for the arts - in particular, music? Your donation to our Annual Appeal is fully tax-deductible! That means rather than leaving the survival of the arts up to fate, you get to direct your tax dollars where you want them.

DONATE via PAYPAL

   

At SIMA we support young artists through our Trigger initiative, future musicians through our NSW school programs, female musicians through our Young Women in Jazz programs and festivals, and artists across the career spectrum with shows, commissions, recordings, festival spots, mentoring and more.

Importantly, our work also supports you: the ticket-buying, record-loving, music-fanatic audiences who thrive on having exciting, high-quality music in their lives.

Guarantee the future of jazz in this country and donate to SIMA now. Anything from $2 up will be fully tax-deductible, gratefully received, and immediately put to work ensuring you a LOUD AND LONG future for jazz in this country.
