The mission of Montavilla Jazz Festival is not only to bolster Portland’s dynamic jazz culture, but also to enrich the local community. Like the neighborhood that serves as its home, MJF is a progressive, diverse, locally minded event that offers Montavilla residents an opportunity to come together, form connections and plug into Portland jazz.
Montavilla Jazz Festival earmarks a portion of each ticket sold to the Montavilla Schools Fund (MSMF). This money funds a variety of music education grants, which are open to the four public schools that serve Montavilla families. Montavilla Jazz Festival is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
