Our community has a legacy of promoting creativity and self-confidence in our children by offering strong music and performing arts opportunities. Your contribution helps maintain this valuable resource. 


Mountain Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Mountain Jam also supports MNHN, a group of volunteers who have come together to provide free help to mountain residents, especially our seniors, who need simple services they cannot provide for themselves.  MNHN provides free rides for medical care or shopping, minor home repairs, light housekeeping, friendly visiting, light gardening and other non-professional services.



Basic Needs of Santa Cruz Area Homeless

Proceeds from Mountain Jam help people in Santa Cruz and Mountains area that are poverty stricken and disadvantaged. Previous Mountain Jam events have provided 1000's of  meals and basic clothing like underwear and socks through food and outreach programs like Manna Ministries of Shoreline Community Church, and Mountain Bible Church who leads the Summit / Loma Prieta community in helping the homeless in our area.


Mountain Jam since 2013

Our grass roots effort helps to build positive self-esteem in the children of our community by promoting opportunities for music appreciation and music participation.  We also recognize that there are those in our community that need our help in a more fundamental way.  100% of Mountain Jam proceeds support these goals in a celebration of music and family fun.
