Make a Gift in Support of the
Charlie Haden Jazz Scholarship Endowment
"One of the most influential bassists in the history of jazz,” - The New York Times - Charlie Haden was a three-time Grammy winner and winner of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, among many other honors throughout his remarkable career. A consummate jazz innovator and a member of the pioneering quartet led by Ornette Coleman, Haden was also passionate about teaching. Joining the CalArts faculty in 1982, the year he founded the Institute’s Jazz Studies Program, Charlie devoted himself to encouraging a new generation of exceptional musicians. Gifts to the Charlie Haden Jazz Scholarship endowment are tax-deductible and will provide tuition support to students at CalArts in perpetuity.
