"The Jon Sims Endowment Fund provided invaluable funding support for the 10th Anniversary Concert of the Desert Winds Freedom Band of Palm Springs (CA). This support allowed us to commission an amazing work called "Journey" by noted composer Charlie Creasy and it was debuted to great success on March 26, 2011.
In addition to this grant, the Desert Winds FreedomBand has now set up its own endowment account at JSEF and we hope to be making regular contributions to it. In this way, we can count on the JSEF to help us preserve the future of our Band forever."
- Gary Moline, Founder, Desert Winds Freedom Band
