For over two decades the Melbourne International Jazz Festival has showcased the world’s best jazz, right here in Melbourne.

However, we cannot do this without your support. As a not-for-profit organisation, we depend on donations from individual supporters, such as you.


MIJF is deeply committed to working with our local Melbourne and Australian jazz community to provide opportunities for local and emerging artists to develop their craft, present new works and continue to contribute to the live music, arts and culture sectors.

Donations of all sizes are greatly appreciated and will support free community events, foster new commissions and collaborations, and provide opportunities for the next generation of Australian jazz musicians. Plus, all donations over $200 will be recognised on the Festival website and future program guides.

Donations $2 and over are tax-deductible.

There are a number of ways to donate to the Melbourne International Jazz Festival:
