JackTrip Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation. Donations to the Foundation from U.S. taxpayers are 100% tax-deductible to the full extent permitted by law.
The JackTrip Foundation (JTF) was established in 2020 as a 501(c)3 non-profit to support the innovation and adoption of Network Arts through grants, education, and community building. To date we have established our legal nonprofit status, defined the scope of our activities, established the JTF Developers Network <jacktrip.org/developers>, and successfully administered 15 Equipment Grants to nonprofit organizations.
We hope you will consider joining our donor community. JTF has two public giving programs available: Public Donations, In-Kind Donations

2. JTF In-Kind Donations
JTF accepts in-kind donations. Presently the scope of in-kind donations includes network arts equipment, website development, and several more volunteers contributing time to the JTF. If you are interested in making an in-kind donation in these areas, to become a volunteer, or to propose another area of in-kind donations, please contact the JTF.
We are very excited about the launch of the Foundation and the impacts we can make in carrying out the mission over time. Network arts is a medium of our time that provides artworks at the forefront of the arts, unprecedented opportunities for live collaboration locally and internationally, access to performance and education opportunities, and advancement of diversity, equity, access, and inclusion. As an emerging medium in recent decades propelled by cutting-edge work for artistic and social purposes, necessity during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the public call for diversifying the arts, network arts is positioned for widespread cultural impact in present and future generations.
Here are quotes from recent grant recipients:
"Funding from the JackTrip Foundation provided unmatched support for CounterPulse to focus on investing in necessary and unique infrastructure needed to advance along with the field of network and telematic arts, an area few other funders are focused on."
- Julie Phelps, Counterpulse
“The Jacktrip Foundation grant for equipment is a great stimulus for me to develop the sonic part of my book on Sonic Migrations: a reflection of my 20+ years of experience listening to inner and outer soundings of my geographical migration.. I am exploring bilingualism in my writing as a ‘multivocality’ that overcomes linguistic boundaries through improvisation and telematics.”
- Ximena Alarcón-Díaz
“The SUNY PACC Prize tour of New York in November 2021 was supported in part by a JackTrip Foundation Equipment Grant. We traveled to 5 SUNY schools and premiered 10 new works that we had commissioned from the students and faculty of these institutes.“
- Ensemble Decipher
