Vail Jazz needs your financial support to carry on its mission and achieve its goals. Unfortunately, ticket sales don’t begin to cover the cost of the performances and educational programs that Vail Jazz presents. Therefore, we must rely on the generous support of individual donors, local businesses and granting foundations that share our dream of preserving jazz and enriching our cultural community.

You don’t have to be a dedicated jazz fan to help. If you believe it is important to support music education for Eagle County youth and the finest young musicians in the nation, to give back to the vibrant arts community in Vail, and to nurture one of our nation’s greatest artistic and cultural achievements, then you will want to support the work of Vail Jazz.

piano keysTom Mapson was a great friend of Vail Jazz, on a personal and a professional level. A tireless supporter of the arts, Tom spearheaded a major fundraising effort resulting in the purchase of three digital keyboards used in Vail Jazz educational programs, and throughout his long relationship with Vail Jazz he was a strong advocate for music education. His dedication will be greatly missed.

Furthering his commitment made during his lifetime, Tom requested that gifts in his memory be made to Vail Jazz educational programs.

We thank you for continuing his legacy.

Contributions in any amount are welcome and will be recognized as fully tax deductible donations in your name, in memory of Tom Mapson. For information or questions, please contact Robin Litt, Executive Director at
