Donations — on hold till the New Year.
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.
If you're interested in donating musical instruments, we kindly ask that you hold on to your instruments till the New Year. We held a four-day instrument drive in November. The response was outstanding. We're so grateful for everyone that was involved!
What We Accept
ArtsCan Circle accepts new and lightly used musical instruments and accessories, 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.
ArtsCan Circle is a registered charity. We can issue tax receipts for instrument donations if accompanied by a written estimate of value from an appropriate evaluator. Contact us for details. 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.
