During the past few years the Sandringham Community Bank which is part of the Bendigo Bank has supported the VJC with an annual grant which has doubled recently. They are very interested in the way we operate and have attended some of our Sunday functions in recent times.
The VJC provided the seeding grant for the Port Fairy Jazz Festival, and gives the Festival ongoing support.
We provide sponsorship for the following jazz radio programmes:-
Jazz On A Saturday - 3CR 855 AM - Saturday 4pm - 5.30pm with Roger Beilby, John Smyth, Geoff Tobin and John Trudinger alternating.
Jazz Tart Swings - Casey Radio 97.7 FM - Wednesday 9.00am -11am with Marg Hendrie.
Mainly Trad - InnerFM 96.5 FM - Tuesday 1pm - 3pm with Ian Smith and Geoff Tobin alternating.
Sounds Of Jazz - Southern FM 88.3 FM - Saturday 10pm - 12pm with Barry Skinner.
For many years the Victorian Jazz Club has contributed to the overheads of having the Victorian Jazz Workshops attend the Annual Jazz Convention held between Xmas and New Year which has been running for more than 60 years.
