Donate Your Musical Instruments For Charity! Free Pickup in New York City

Donate Instruments

Do you have used or new musical instruments you’d like to donate to New York City schoolchildren through our partner charity MusiCan?

If so, we offer free pickup and can provide you with a tax donation receipt from our 501(c)(3) nonprofit. MusiCan places your used or new instruments in the hands of children in New York City public schools in disadvantaged communities.

The children we serve are in need of the following instruments:

Guitar, electric piano and digital piano, bass, drum pads and drums, horns (saxophone, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, flute, oboe), and strings (viola, violin, cello, string bass, ukulele). Amplifiers.

We are seeking DJ equipment such as mixers, controllers and interfaces, turntables, vinyl, microphones and stands, speakers. If you have something unusual, like an accordion, just ask. If we can find a home for it with the kids, we will.

We have two public schools in low-income neighborhoods with the desire and space for baby grand or grand pianos.

(At this time we cannot take donations of upright pianos.)

How to Donate:

We answer all inquiries within 2 to 4 business hours. Choose an option to begin the easy process:

Phone. Text or call MusiCan co-founder Joe Berger at (646) 320-3131.

We offer free pick up in most New York City neighborhoods (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Riverdale). Long Island (Hamptons, Montauk). Westchester (Scarsdale, Mamaroneck, Larchmont, New Rochelle, Rye, Bronxville, White Plains).

We will provide you with a donation receipt for your taxes. MusiCan is a 501(c)(3) registered charity that has been providing music education in public schools in low-income neighborhoods since 2009. Please also consider a financial donation to MusiCan to continue our programming in public schools.

Thank you very much for your support and generosity!
