While we focus our efforts on collecting instruments, financial aid is vital to this project. Donations help offset the cost of accessories such as new reeds, rosin and strings and logistics like shipping. This project succeeds not on large corporate sponsorship but on the generosity of many regular people just like you. Any denomination great or modest is equally appreciated, please click the button below if you'd like to help.
Donate an Instrument
We are happy to accept virtually any instrument: flutes, cellos, trumpets, baritones, electronic keyboards, french horns, guitars, even recorders and ukuleles are welcome! We are also happy to receive accessories like tuners, metronomes, new reeds and strings, music books and scores and especially in demand are music stands. Unfortunately we are unable to accept pianos due to shipping considerations or used harmonicas for hygienic reasons.
Donations can be dropped off during regular business hours at Metro Music, 695 Bank Street, (613) 233-9688. Donations can also be picked up anywhere in the Ottawa area. To have your donation picked up please get in touch via the Contact page.
