Music For Tomorrow is a non-profit 501c3 organization whose mission is to stimulate the creative economy by fostering performance opportunities for
jazz musicians across the country. Through these efforts, it seeks to raise public awareness of the beauty of jazz music, as well as the extraordinary
culture it has to offer.
We launched in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. In an effort to help displaced jazz musicians, Music For Tomorrow created
performance opportunities for jazz musicians and raise awareness about jazz music.
Today, Music For Tomorrow's online band booking service provides performance opportunities while connecting jazz musicians with audiences. Music For
Tomorrow enables folks to find and book musicians quickly and within budget, creating more access to jazz music while extending the music's reach.
In keeping with the mission to help the creative economy, Music For Tomorrow requests a voluntary donation for each gig booked. These donations
perpetuate MFT's band booking service, which ensures more performance opportunities and jobs, for musicians, while growing the jazz audience and
celebrating the traditions of New Orleans.
The arts are beneficial to the American economy. Arts generate $166.2 billion in economic activity, support 5.7 million jobs and return nearly $30
billion in revenue to the government each year. Donations to MFT are investments that help jazz musicians find more employment opportunities and
bolster the creative economy.
