Who Hungry for Music Helps:
- Music teachers at Title One schools who identify children who cannot participate because of lack of funding.
- Music directors at innovative after-school music programs.
- Social workers who have young clients who would benefit from music therapy.
NOTE: If you are an international organization seeking instruments, please have your stateside sponsor reach out to us. We will not respond to any international inquiries without stateside sponsors. Thank you for understanding.

- We only accept requests from public school music teachers, administrators, after-school/summer music program directors, and social workers.
- Our music instrument donation program for Title One public schools is designed to support teachers who have a few students who cannot participate in class because of financial need. We do not outfit entire music programs.
- Hungry for Music supports more than three dozen after-school/summer music programs annually across the United States. To be added to our distribution, a site visit is required. Please fill out the request application to schedule a site visit.
- Social workers and school counselors can submit a request application for a student if they have access to instruction through a music program.
- In our history, we have supported music programs in 33 different countries through stateside sponsors (i.e. business, school, church). We do not accept requests directly from international programs.
