Donate to the Al Cohn Memorial Jazz Collection

There are a number of ways you can help keep this worthwhile collection going, while enjoying the benefits that go along with giving to a worthy cause (namely, tax deductions* and that overall good feeling).

Contribute Cash

The generosity of ACMJC supporters has kept this collection going since 1988. Please help keep it going by making out a check or money order payable to “Al Cohn Memorial Jazz Collection” and sending it to the address at the bottom of this page. And if your employer offers a matching gifts program, we’d be doubly delighted if you’d include an application for us to submit. Thank you!

Contribute Jazz-Related Materials

Since its inception, the collection’s holdings have consisted entirely of donated materials. Original compositions and arrangements, all forms of recordings, photographs, interviews, essays, video tapes, ephemera, books and artwork have been sent to the collection by generous contributors. If you have jazz-related materials you would like to donate please contact the collection coordinator at the phone number, email or postal address noted below.

Also, it is possible to donate items at a later time. Through designations in their wills, a few very generous supporters plan to pass along their private jazz collections to the ACMJC. For more information, please contact the Collection Coordinator.


To those of you who have supported us so generously in the past, please accept our heartfelt thanks — we wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for you!


* All monetary donations are tax-deductible and gratefully acknowledged. In order to claim a tax deduction for a significant donation of jazz-related materials, you may need to have an appraisal made first. Please note that we cannot provide appraisals nor legal or tax advice, so please consult your own advisors.
