Jesse Bermudez was a dynamic and larger than life cultural icon in Philadelphia, a dear friend to so many of us, and a passionate supporter of the Latino community and the careers of so many musicians. The Jesse Bermudez Legacy Fund was established to continue the life work and commitment of Jesse who served as a cultural arts education champion throughout Greater Philadelphia. The fund will support emerging musicians through scholarships as well as established musicians in the form of microgrants.

The Jesse Bermudez Legacy Fund is administered by an Advisory Board composed of local community leaders, cultural experts, and arts and education advocates from the regional community.

Please consider a gift honoring the life work of Jesse Bermudez and the continuation of his legacy. Tax-Deductible contributions can be made through the Painted Bride Art Center which serves as the Fiscal Sponsor for the fund. Click here to make your contribution today!
