Join us this fall by participating in Play It Forward: Classical Minnesota Public Radio’s Musical Instrument Drive™. Our school’s music program will directly benefit when you partner with Classical MPR’s instrument drive campaign.
Most schools throughout Minnesota have a great need for more instruments so that motivated and talented students have opportunities to participate in band or orchestra. Our school lacks the funds to buy new instruments and many families cannot afford to rent instruments for their children.
During the month of November, Classical MPR will encourage more than 850,000 listeners to donate used band or orchestra instruments to their community’s schools. Classical MPR and its partners, the Minnesota Music Educators Association and Vega Productions, will encourage listeners to donate as many instruments as possible and get them into the hands of hundreds of eager and talented children.
Tell me more
Listeners will be encouraged to donate their used instruments to schools in their community. Classical MPR will reach out in many ways, including announcements on-air and online, social media and email communication to MPR listeners.
Every person who donates an instrument to our school will receive a tax receipt. When our school accepts an instrument, we will fill out our school’s info at the top of the form and the instrument. The top portion of the form will be given to the donor and the school will keep the bottom tear off section for our records. Note: An appraisal is only required if the donation is worth $5,000 or more, and the appraisal is the responsibility of the donor. The school will not assign a value to the donation of a used instrument.
WHAT INSTRUMENTS ARE NEEDED?
Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Baritone, Tuba, Trombone, & Percussion
What if Donors Would like to Make a financial contribution?
Our school is capable of receiving financial contributions towards the purchase of instruments. A tax receipt will be provided.
WHEN CAN I DROP OFF MY DONATION?
Donations may be dropped at the front office during regular school hours (7:15-3:15).
