Donate Your Musical Instruments

Donate your violins and other orchestral instruments.

Do you have an old violin in your closet? Is there a used cello hidden in your attic? Sacramento Performing Arts Conservatory is launching a donation drive for used (and unused) musical instruments and supplies. We do not sell donated musical instruments. All donated musical instruments are used in our Instrument Loan Program.

What We Need:

  • Violin
  • Viola
  • Cello
  • Clarinet
  • Flute
  • French Horn
  • Guitars
  • Keyboard
  • Percussion Instruments (All Types)
  • Oboe
  • Saxophones (All Types)

  • Music scores & sheets

How we use them:    

We lend the instruments to the SCUSD, EGUSD, FCUSD, TRUSD, and SJUSD Title I schools / under-served children who are receiving music education through The Sacramento Performing Arts Conservatory. When students outgrow the instruments they return them so that other students can use them. We teach students to take good care of instruments and to make sure that other students will receive them in the same conditions in the future.
Call us at 916-308-2307

Our organization depends upon these donations in order to uphold our commitment to providing a supportive and educational environment that inspires creativity and expression. This is an excellent way for donors to ensure that their unused instruments find a new home in the hands of promising young students who are unable to afford or obtain a suitable instrument of their own. When you donate your instruments to the Sacramento Performing Arts Conservatory, you will receive a tax receipt based on the appraised market value of the instrument. Simply contact us and tell us the brand, model and condition of the instrument and we will be in touch.  Your donations are 100% tax-deductible.  Federal ID: # 46-3720452
