The Sunjams Foundation

Working to Brighten the Future of Music Education

Who We Are

   The Sunjams Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring the healing power of music to individuals and audiences. We present live outdoor concerts as a way to bolster local community and fundraise for our cause. We fund music education in under-resourced public schools in the area because we believe that music is one of the most effective means of helping kids develop positive connections to each other, to themselves, and to their school.

We are a 501c3 foundation. (EIN) / TAX ID 47-4435137.

Small-Batch Organic Homemade Apricot Sun Jam

Each year when jam season commences, we gather around 100-200 pounds of organic apricots to bake for 3 days under the sun right in our backyard. The entire jam-making process takes about a week per batch, of which we typically produce 3-6. Every single batch is unique.
