Shining For Arts Education and the Advancement of Equality


Our mission is to shine for inclusive arts education and the advancement of equality. Our purpose is to cause peace in the world.


As a donor advised fund established in 2011, JMF has raised over $1 million to help support organizations such as Harmonic Humanity, True Colors United, Life Rolls On, School of the Performing Arts in the Richmond Community (SPARC), Rock n’ Roll Camp For Girls, and American Foundation for Equal Rights. In 2017 JMF transitioned into a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to shine for inclusive arts education and the advancement of equality by providing program support, performance opportunities, and arts education.


In 2019 we launched our first performance program in Southern California: SHINE, a bright new musical adventure featuring Jason Mraz & Friends in collaboration with San Diego arts organizations, which concluded with two sold-out performances at the Spreckels Theatre on February 15 & 16, 2020.
