Donate Musical Instruments



Do you have a guitar, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica,     keyboard, recorder, or other small rhythm instruments in  GOOD playing shape collecting dust in a closet? What about guitar strings and picks, electronic tuners, straps, instrument cases or music books?

Youth in Northern Indigenous communities have NO access to these, and when they receive a musical instrument of their very own, it can be life-changing.

Your donated musical instrument will be sent directly to youth in isolated and remote Canadian communities where they will be appreciated and utilized.

It is extremely costly to get your instrument to a fly-in only community thousands of kilometres from accessible roads. 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 Northern 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 of providing quality instruction to the children. This includes using the instrument to generate funds to support workshop costs.
