We have moved our fundraising campaign to GoGetFunding. YouCaring was recently acquired by GoFundMe and does not support Philippine-based campaigns anymore.
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO CONTINUE TO BELIEVE IN US. ALL YOUR DONATIONS FROM THE YOUCARING CAMPAIGN WILL BE USED FOR THE REPAIRS OF TAGO JAZZ CAFE.
UPDATE AS OF AUG 2018
The typhoons and monsoon rains from the beginning of 2018 have greatly affected Tago and continue to contribute to the rapid deterioration of our home. We are expecting more of these in the coming months and we do not want to compromise everyone's safety just to continue operating.
We have consulted several construction professionals to check if there is a temporary solution available for us. Their recommendation is to retrofit the overall structural integrity, as well as repair the roofing, walling, cladding, and flooring components of the house. These temporary repairs will buy us time as we continue to look for additional funds to do a structural overhaul, and to accomplish our goals and endeavors for our original campaign.
We have sourced part of the full amount from your previous donations as well as from personal loans we took. However, we still need help to complete the remaining amount so we can begin with the repairs.
THE ORIGINAL CAMPAIGN
We need your help to keep jazz alive.
Tago Jazz Café is the only venue in the Philippines devoted to advocating how Jazz can bring a positive change to the lives of the artists and audiences.
Tago Jazz was founded in 2010 and is located in an old house in Cubao, Quezon City, Philippines. We are the first Filipino representative in the UNESCO International Jazz Day festivities, and we are home to both the veteran and new jazz artists in the country.
Our efforts to promote Jazz goes beyond the boundaries of our humble abode. Despite the daunting challenges, we organize jazz programs in and through different key venues and media where we showcase both local and international jazz artists. All these efforts are to inspire people to lead meaningful and worthwhile lives through music - to give them the opportunity of learning, discipline, and passion; and to have a people be in favor of humility, the pursuit of excellence, and ultimately, humanity.
However, our home is falling apart and we need immediate help to REBUILD and SUSTAIN this key venue.
With your donations, we will rebuild Tago Jazz and have a better venue for audiences to unite and explore jazz together. We will continue to cultivate the talents and skills of our jazz artists, furthering them into their musical journeys.
Your pledges will also enable us to spearhead outreach and educational programs across the Philippines, and your aid will allow us forge a solid and sustainable Jazz Circuit that encourages discoveries and growth.
Help us and keep Jazz alive.
