Instrument Donations

Youth in northern indigenous communities have little to no access to musical instruments. When they receive an instrument of their very own, it can be life-changing.

What We Accept

ArtsCan Circle accepts new and lightly keyboards, guitars, violins, drums and amplifiers/cables and music books, computer equipment, musical scores and sheet music.

What we mean by lightly used?

All instruments need to be in excellent working condition with no scrapes ect.

What We Can’t Take

IMPORTANT: Instruments that are not working and/or unplayable/needing repairs.

Woodwind and brass instruments are acceptable and if possible, have the instrument cleaned before donating for sanitation purposes. We do not have the space to store large instruments such as acoustic pianos, stand up-organs and drum sets unless otherwise stated.

Tax Receipts

We can issue tax receipts for instrument donations if accompanied by a written estimate of value from an appropriate evaluator. Any donation over $20 is tax deductible!

NOTE: ArtsCan Circle reserves the unqualified right to use the instruments as they will best serve its mission. This pertains ONLY to specialized pieces that can be used in another capacity. ArtsCan Circle will have a conversation with the donor in the first instance and determine the best fit.
