The primary goal of the Fundraising Committee is to raise funds for the JSUNAA Chicago Chapter Scholarship Fund. A small portion of the funds raised cover the costs associated with planning and executing scholarship related events, supporting the chapter infrastructure and to support and recruit alumni members.

For The Love of Blue Jazz & Blues Scholarship Fundraiser is our premier fundraising event.
The event was created in 2009 and is the primary vehicle used by the Chicago Chapter to generate scholarship funding that is given out to applicants from Chicago, attending Jackson State University. It is given to freshmen and renewed annually to students meeting renewal criteria
