DONATE INSTRUMENTS

Instruments gathering dust?

Donate them to us!

We know there are thousands of musical instruments that are gathering dust in closets and garages everywhere.

When you donate an instrument to The Gift of Music Foundation, you help ensure that students or programs in need can enjoy the gift of music.

Your donation is tax-deductible for the value of the instrument.

Instrument Donation Pledge

 

NOTE:  We DO NOT ACCEPT Upright  Acoustic Pianos

But these guys do! 

What are you donating?

We are happy to accept instruments in any condition!  We have our own, on site instrument repair and refurb center (IRC) to make sure they are ready for our programs, which often includes a fresh new case.  If an instrument is found to be unrepairable, we use it for parts or recycle with a local partner.  Piano donation?  Click here.
