Newport Festivals Foundation Makes Donation to Richmond's JAMinc in the Name of Lucy Dacus

Posted By on Thu, Apr 4, 2019 at 2:00 PM

Newport Festivals Foundation has made a donation on behalf of Richmond's best known singer/songwriter of late, Lucy Dacus, to locally based JAMinc to support its school outreach efforts.

Newport noted: "Since 2004 JAMinc has taken studio concert artists to public schools with more than 90,000 students served so far. This donation will be used to underwrite the instructor fees JAMinc provides each artist."

President of JAMinc, Tim Timberlake released this statement: "JAMinc is beyond grateful to Richmond's own Lucy Dacus for tapping us as her musical non profit-of-choice. It's so important for us to provide opportunities for young people to hear music performed live, never knowing how one single moment might trigger the lifetime joy that only music can provide."

Timberlake told Style they were flattered by the donation and that it will be used to defray the cost of their school outreach program, which you can read more about here.
