Donation Information

Pianos, Instruments, & Equipment

Important: the donated item must be located within the greater Washington, DC area (DMV).

Pianos

 

The piano is one of the most necessary instruments for music education, composition, theory, rehearsal, and performance. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most expensive instruments. With your help and generous donation, we can provide pianos to build a stronger musical community. Your piano may find a home in lesson studios, rehearsal studios, arts organizations, schools, performance venues, or be given to a student and/or musician in need.  We strive to provide a reliable, expedient, hassle-free source to gift your piano.

 

STANDARDS FOR PIANO DONATION:

$3,000 value 

New to Good Condition. Workable studio instrument.

Repairs not necessary.

Consider the cost of relocation versus the value of the piano.

Local applicants only: DC, VA, MD
