Let Us Find a New Home for Your Old Instrument

Instrument donations are the fuel that enables us to transform lives.

  • We accept instrument donations in any condition.
  • While we prefer instruments in playable condition, we can repair and/or refurbish most instruments to give them new life.
  • We DO NOT accept upright pianos or organs. Please contact Pianos for Education to donate a piano.
  • Depending on your location, we can usually have a volunteer pick up your instrument.
  • If we don't have a volunteer or drop-off location in your city, we will ask you to send the instrument to us.
  • Your donation is tax-deductible and we will provide a receipt.
Instrument donation is easy! Fill out a short form to start the process.
To make a large donation of multiple instruments, please call 202-436-0803 or send an email.

Instruments that have seen their last days are sent to Landfill Harmonic for parts/overhaul or given to artists to create musical instrument art. These are auctioned at an event called Musical Visions: Live Music & Art Auction. So far, we have held two of these events at the Gibson Guitar VIP Showroom in Washington, DC and OPUS 40 in Saugerties, NY.
