DONATIONS

If you are interested in donating musical instruments, we kindly ask that you hold on to your instruments till the end of this month. 🙂 We will be happy to arrange a time/date /place to drop-off in Toronto at this time.

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.

Your donated musical instrument(s) will be sent to youth in northern indigenous communities where they will be appreciated and utilized.

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

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, drum sets and speakers but we can see if there is a need and work together on how to get it shipped.

It is extremely costly to get your instrument to a fly-in only community. Becasue of the Pandemic and lockdowns, we are happy to work together on finding safe and efficient ways on how to ship your instrument to a remote northern community or a drop-off location in downtown Toronto or Newmarket. Many people also make an OPTIONAL CASH gift either online or when dropping off the instrument that is used to prepare, pack, and ship their donated instrument to a community.

CLICK HERE if you want to make a cash donation ONLINE TODAY to defray the cost of sending your donated instrument to a Northern community (suggested $25).

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.
