The Star Jasmine Foundation and JAMS. Through music and mentoring we provide a path to self improvement and transform the lives of the underserved members of our community. Inspiring and healing through musical experiences and enhancing the lives of all ages, in a creative and caring environment. 
This has always been our mission of the Star Jasmine Foundation. We work our way one step closer to changing the lives of our most vulnerable community members.
A life is not dictated by age, but what you and I do to make a difference in the quality of it, one person at a time. Our foundation targets primarily at-risk youth teens, low income families and adults with special needs.
We are so pleased to share with our community that the Star Jasmine Foundation has established a vibrant grass roots music school and exploration center called JAMS. It's been here in Santa Barbara now for 9 years, thanks to the help from Norm Waitt, Founder of GateWay commuters, for giving us our start. Also thanks to The Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation, Girls Inc, Johnson Ohana Foundation, ABS Foundation, Rudi Schulte Foundation, Roberts Bro Foundation and the generous private donations of the community. To continue with our scholarship programs we ask that you please consider joining us by supporting our cause to put music in the lives of those who need it the most. Music certainly adds to the quality of life. We have seen it transform our students. 
Please join us for an artist fundraiser at Island Brew. It's going on right now until April 2nd. It's an oil seascape painting series. Over 18 paintings available in giclee's also. 50% of all proceeds go to music scholarships for children.
In appreciation,
Warm love and oceans of joy,
Nancy
