Request an Instrument

We support parents who cannot afford the cost of renting or purchasing an instrument.

We support teachers who have students unable to participate because of the cost.

We support established, innovative community music programs that need support. 

Requests for instruments for a Title 1 school program must be requested by the music teacher or school administration. Requests for after-school programs must be made by the program director. Any questions? Send an email to

We welcome your request! If you are a teacher or band director and would like to request an instrument for your student, please submit an application. If you are a parent, please have your child's teacher or band director make the request.  

Currently, our priority is music teachers and band directors we already have a relationship with. We will consider new requests on a case-by-case basis, depending on our available instrument inventory.

PLEASE NOTE:  Although we do send instruments all over the world, we can only do so through a U.S. partner organization.  If you are in another country, please find an international school, church, or other organization that would be willing to partner with us before you begin the application process.

Please submit the form below and we will call or email you within 7-10 days. Thank you!


Instrument request application period has CLOSED for 2018.

We will announce 2019 application period early next year.

Please wait to fill out next year’s application.

Thank you!
