Can I donate a used musical instrument?
Schools are always in need of good quality band and orchestral instruments, whether they are new or used. Used instruments are always assessed and repaired if necessary, before being delivered to a school.
I don’t have an instrument to donate, can I still get involved?
Yes! Gift of Music is always in need of funds to help with its programs, making music a reality for vulnerable children. Why not hold a fundraising event or set up your very own private or corporate fundraising supporter’s donation page?
