Donate an Instrument

Do you have a perfectly good instrument at home that’s gathering dust? Or perhaps you have a few more guitars than you actually need? What better way to put those unused instruments to use than to donate them to Ethos students? Thanks to generous community support, we are able to rent instruments at greatly reduced rates to qualifying students enrolled in our in-house classes at Ethos Music Center.  Donated instruments are also used in our rural and urban outreach programs, that bring the academic benefits of music education to over 7,000 youth each year.

We update our Wish List quarterly to reflect our most pressing instrument and gear needs. We recommend reviewing this list and contacting Instrument Staff, at: to determine if your donation is a good fit for Ethos’ current needs. Because we have limited storage space, we can not accept all instrument donations. We also cannot accept sheet music, broken or severely damaged instruments.  Ethos is a 501(c)3 and your inkind donation is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
