EMPOWERMENT TREE GRANTS - Separating the Wheat from the Chaff, the Empowerment Tree Grant raises maximum sustainable funds for your outstanding cause, promotes you to Donors and Foundations Worldwide, at no cost to you. Click HERE for details.


Dear VIP INVITE Committee Members,


We are excited about the opportunity to support your organization.


My job as a Grant Administrator is to uncover Outstanding Causes such as yours and advocate for them by helping them to reach the 100% to you Maximum Funding Level as outlined at www.jazzforpeace.org/maxfunds. This initial preparation in combination with their own impressive documentation is utilized to win their Empowerment Tree Grant approval.


There are 2 reasons for this.


  1. Obtaining the 100% to you level gives the recipient organization the very best chance to raise the most funds for their cause in addition to the publicity and awareness and other Branches of our Empowerment Tree that this Grant makes possible.


  1. Assisting the recipient towards reaching the 100% to you level enables these events to offer value to our Donors because we can now show them that their donations are able to be spread across a variety of events.


None of our donors will give us money to spend all on just your event. But by reaching this 100% to you level, we give BOTH our recipients the best opportunity to raise much needed funds AND our donors the necessary value that they require for them to continue to fund this program.


In Summary: Events that fall short of this are simply a disappointment to our donors who need to see proof that their donations are spread across a wide variety of outstanding causes in order to continue this acclaimed non bias program.


To assist outstanding causes to reach the 100% to you MaxFunds goal we offer two things: Incredible value for their VIP Guest of honor ticket, and the Unprecedented Achievements found at this link (Click HERE), which when added to the Outstanding Cause offers an event that simply does not exist in your city or town.


The average VIP Committee formed for our events only needs to gather 6 VIP’s in addition to themselves who purchased a pair of discount tickets each for us to be on track to reach the 100% to you level.


Fortunately, in order to be selected for this Grant, your organization ALONE is likely a worthy enough cause by itself of 4 pairs of tickets each (8 tickets total).


And it would be the understatement of the century to say that the Unprecedented Achievements of Jazz for Peace along with the significant rewards offered to VIP Guests of Honor (Click HERE) aren’t worth an additional two pairs and is attainable by emailing a small group of 25-50 people and following up by phone or in person to an even smaller group of 8-10 people.


So I would like to assist you to reach this goal with as many days to spare as possible so that you not only reach this goal but also have additional time for which to generate 100% of each dollar that comes in directly to your outstanding cause.


Below is additional information for any Committee Members who has less than 6 VIP Guests of Honor already attending (12 tickets total plus a pair of tickets for themselves of course!).


Please contact me so that we can add these few additional VIPs that this wonderful event and your outstanding   organization deserve.

Additional VIP Guest of Honor Clarification – (two important components)

Dear Potential Grant Applicants,

The Jazz for Peace Foundation Grant is proud to offer outstanding and worthwhile causes an opportunity to receive the acclaimed support previous given to the 800 Outstanding Organizations detailed in the link above.

One important thing to note:


This Grant is NOT for individual people or organizations who have not yet tried to find supporters for their cause. 


This grant is for people who have not only already tried, but have actually had enough success already (either friends, family, board members and supporters or a combination thereof who believe in them) to deserve to be taken to the next level of being MORE funded, MORE publicized, MORE sponsored, MORE Befriended, and MORE prestigious than ever before.  In short, a worthwhile cause who can receive the benefit of all our experience and expertise derived from 9 years support of outstanding causes and is truly ready to cash in on the Unprecedented Achievements and acclaim listed in the link above.


For those who are ready to be a recipient of this award there are two important components to the Empowerment Goals that we have achieved so far:

1.      Welcoming in the NEW supporters.

2.      While at the same time thanking the old supporters thereby creating a unified and stronger team going forward.

One thing in common that we have noticed with each our grant applicants so far is that rather than treat their previous supporters like members of the general public and making them pay full price to attend should they so desire and then when they arrive treating no different than any other attendee, they would instead prefer to say a very a very BIG thank you to their Board members, Friends, Family or Supporters by taking full advantage of our funding opportunity to ROLL OUT THE RED CARPET and make them be the very special VIP Guests of Honor of this historic event for their organization. 

For anyone who may be unable to see the obvious reasons for them to prefer to take full advantage of this opportunity here is additional clarification:

Lets give common sense a chance:

1.  You can't possibly invite the media to an event that has no organization present for them to write about.

2.  You can't possibly invite sponsors to an event that has no organization present for them to partner with.

3.  You can't possibly invite future supporters to an event that has no organization present for them to unify with.

4. You can't possibly invite a celebrity or prestigious members of the community to an event that has no organization present for them to meet.

5. You can't possibly invite major donors to an event that has no organization present for them to become enamored with.


6. You can't possibly inject NEW BLOOD into an organization without establishing a positive and welcoming relationship with the OLD BLOOD so that you avoid a terrible pitfall of having an organization separated by new blood on one side and old blood on the other, but instead have a new, strong, and cohesive unit going forward.

By rolling out the Red Carpet for current and previous supporters (see VIP receptions here - http://www.wix.com/jfpgrants/10th#!videos )  we make sure they are there to greet whoever the new supporters may be or may become so that this new group made up of new and old supporters is unified and strong.

This saves dozens of separate meetings that would otherwise be needed and brings everyone together which for many of our recipients is absolutely mandatory for the cohesiveness that is needed for this new and potentially much STRONGER group to thrive.

With this in mind:  We have yet to meet a hard working and dedicated organization that is unable to understand the above and the attached when wondering why our Board feels it is ESSENTIAL to Honor the previous supporters of our recipients who have helped them get to the point where they could qualify for this prestigious funding award.

At the same time we have NEVER met a VIP who didn’t think it was an absolutely wonderful Idea that we honored them.

Feel free to let me know if you have any additional questions about these two important components.

John De Angelis, Grants Administrator
