The great trumpeter Tom Harrell said in a live radio interview with VJC Director Eugene Uman:
…Music heals through the act of bringing people together to experience community and positive energy.
During his performance at the VJC, he remarked on how impressed he was by the feeling of unity and joy that he felt at our venue.
There is a way for you to make a difference, to help assure that the feelings of unity and joy that Tom observed endure seamlessly into the future. Your actions can guarantee that these positive experiences remain readily available, in perpetuity, to all.
After providing for your loved ones in your estate planning, we would be grateful if you would consider making a gift through our planned giving program.
Please contact your financial planner or VJC Director Eugene Uman (802-258-8822 / email@example.com)to confidentially discuss your options for giving.
Musician and VJC supporter Lynne Meryl has arranged with her financial consultant to include the Jazz Center in her future plans. In a letter to the VJC describing her gift, Lynne wrote:
I want to see jazz continue for future generations. The VJC does a stellar job of inspiring, educating and teaching this music we love so much. It is with great appreciation that I have chosen to leave them money for this purpose.
